I meant to post this earlier, but got distracted.

We have one of those "Old Timer's Leagues" at the golf course where I work now. There are a dozen, maybe more guys, and they play in teams, and probably for money and beers. Anyway, they're kinda cool, all these old retired guys, (ages 60-80, approx.) just hitting the ball around for the hell of it. 

So I'm out there raking bunkers on number 9, which is a par three, and it's the hole they do their "closest to the pin" contest. And the first guy on the tee winds up, hits it. It lands about ten feet short of the pin and rolls on in. It was pretty cool. All his budies were like "gee, if we'd known you were going to do that, we wouldn't have bothered walking down here!" (the 9th hole is considerably lower in elevation than most of the rest of the course, and it's quite a hike for these old dudes. 

Anyway, it was pretty cool, cuz I've never seen an ace in person before, just on TV.

Oh, that is cool! A high-school student got a hole in one here last year, and it was a really big deal - but somehow not quite as cool as the Old Timers doing it.
