Crazy...but I Made my Second Ace in Three Months!

I have never made back to back aces this quick but I made my eighth career hole in one on June 16, 2019, three months after making my seventh!

I aced the par 3, 115 yard, 12th hole at Riverplace CC in Austin.  I used my 54 degree Cleveland RTX 4 wedge that hit about 6' behind the hole and spun back in the hole.

Thanks again to Srixon/Cleveland Golf!

What a Difference 40 Years Makes!

In 1979 I was an assistant golf professional at Horseshoe Bay Resort and Country Club.   While playing the 9th hole (Slick Rock Course) with one of my fellow assistants, my tee shot ended up in this position.  He thought it was quite humorous and snapped this picture.  This was just a simple reach between the trees 9 iron shot that made it on the green.  


This week while competing in a STPGA Senior Series tournament at Horseshoe Bay, I tried to recreate the famous shot.  It just wasn't going to happen.


 Forty years makes a difference indeed!  

I am writing this with sadness however, as Sharon Putt, the wife of Bob Putt, my first mentor and former head professional at Horseshoe Bay, passed away this week.  I have many great memories of my time spent there learning the golf business from one of the best golf professionals in the industry and Sharon was a huge part of that experience too.
