How many of you have sunk a hole in one...on the fly? No bounce...no roll...no flag pole help...just all cup?

I'm on a roll Slucey, I dl'd three beautiful courses by John Aherne today, Roganstown, Hermitage and Bunclody. I aced the 10th on Hermitage the first time playing the back 9 with no flag pole help, and aced the 2nd on Roganstown first time playing the course also, the one on Roganstown got a peach of a bounce, that twincey bit of luck all aces require, all my aces I got at champ level(3 click) and with breezy, I'm on a roll, or the Gods are smiling down on me..... :cheers1: ....I think the 3 click offers a great deal of accuracy, I will adapt/try the RTS/or power swing eventually....

Thank you for all the SHoT files, I checked 'em all out.

Two of them I had to download the courses, both of which made me glad I requested others share their hole-in-one's because: (a) Mansford Waters GC looks nice, will play that one shortly, (b) how the h*ll did I not have Eddie Schmidt's Kill Devil Hills downloaded before? I have all his others, but not that one. Got it now! Thank you for making a hole-in-one there or I may have never seen it. It was a good one too -- past the pin, backspin brought it back into the cup.

The one on #10/Hermitage was the first one I watched -- love the big drop on that hole, very reminiscent of the par 3's that can be found here in Northern Michigan. Good shot.

I liked the shot on #2/Roganstown too, ball had to bounce over that front bunker, and with the pin practically right on the edge, that's probably the only way to get a hole-in-one there, unless it's on-the-fly or something.

One of my top-5 Links courses for sure.
What a dream to be able to play there in real life, a golf sim will have to serve as a substitute.

For the hole-in-one on #10, I used Sir Sean Connery as the animation. He had NO, and I mean ZERO, reaction to the shot. To add insult to injury, if you replay the shot 1x reverse angle, the fans on the right aren't even watching! They're looking over at an adjacent hole. Well, I enjoyed it. :smile:

Okay, that's enough of the par 3 hole-in-one's, how about a par 4?

I cannot claim credit for this in any way whatsoever, but this is a good one from Simon Kent in 2002 at a course (The Tribute) I love playing in real life:
It's a 430 yard hole, this one was from 325, he must have been playing the "front" tees.

Here is a photo of the hole the last time I played there:
