Great shot! We were around to see it since the video never stopped rolling!
I will never get any academy of video making awards but the ‘real time’ culture has always been my way of doing the videos because I want people to see how the swings and mechanics in general work when ‘I’ apply them as I do in real time, it was a fun day… and those balls are really good.
they sold in nz jh ?
I dont know … I will be talking to the company today so I will find out.
Great shot JH! I had witnesses for my two hole-in-ones. I actually saw my first one go in the hole on a 140 yard par 3. I didn’t see the second one because I lost sight of it when it lined up directly on the pin…I heard it hit the pin and figured it careened off the green somewhere but when we got to the green we saw that the front of the hole was damaged. I had actually dunked it on the fly! Very exciting day although very expensive. We had 30+ guys in our competition that day so my bar tab was steep! Well worth it and some of the guys were buying me drinks…my wife had to come pick me up because I was in no shape to drive. I never understood why the guy who makes the ace has to buy the drinks. Seems like it would be the other way around. Really enjoying your channel JH and have learned so much from you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Cheers!
I have had 14 holes in one in competition ( should that be hole in one’s)…. luckily in Australia they are not a big deal like everywhere else … I have only had to buy drinks a few times… I think because I came to Golf late in life I didn’t have the mystique of thinking about a hole in one so they never entered my mind as an objective.
I did however on 5 occasions have distinct feeling that I was going to hole my tee shot which I did… and two of those were first holes in a round starting starting on the 10 th tee which were par 3’s … good way to start a round dont you think.
Its crazy that someone like me can have 14 hole in ones and someone as spectacular as a player like Rory Macilroy has only had one I believe… and just a year ago, I cant confirm but I thought I also saw that Ben Hogan never had a hole in one in competition….it really does highlight the luck of the game doesn’t it.
I once took someone to the course who wanted to learn to play Golf… I spent about an hour with the guy showing him how to swing the club before going on to the golf course and he could make reasonable contact because he was a well coordinated athletic type of guy, I drove up to a short par 3 hole of 130 yards and stopped the buggy just short of the green and took the guy up to the green and showed him how big the green actually was because it wouldnt look like that from the teeing ground.
We walked back to the buggy and got a club each and a couple of balls then walked back to the tee leaving the motorized cart about 30 yards short of the green just of to the right of the center of the fairway… I hit 2 balls to the green showing the guy it was only about the swing and not the pressure of the target.
He had about 10 practice swings trying to mimic my style then proceeded to hit a low worm burner ground slice that hit the fender of the cart and bounced onto the green and into the hole… his first shot on a golf course was a hole in one….
I put my arm around the guy and said as good as that was getting the hole in one on his first ever shot on a golf course it laid the foundation for never being able to ever surpass that performance…. he agreed …. and we drove back to the club house harboring a memory that was probably unique in the World of Golf ……he was an American visitor on holidays in Australia…. I have no idea if he ever did take up playing .
Amazing…that guy could quit the game on the spot and say that his gross score over his golfing life is 2 under par, ha ha! I nearly had a similar one when I was a 30+ handicap and had just started playing the game. I thinned a 4 iron on a 175 yard par 3 and the ball never got higher than a foot off the ground. It rolled up on the green at Mach 5, slammed into the pin with over spin and sat down about 2 inches from the cup. Now that was pure luck for sure. Great story by the way. Cheers!
Hi JH i noticed that your right arm was not doing the gun clinger is what you was doing something that we should be working towards. Many thanks Brian
In the base line scheme of Davinci Code mechanics we should be doing the gunslinger address position……if the weather is ok today I will be doing some videos on the non-negotiables of Davinci Code Mechanics.. …and what you point out as an observation is correct… I wasn’t adhering to the core principles of the mechanics on that day….
