They call me Mr. Lucky

I’m starting to get a reputation as THE guy you just might want to play with for a round of golf. It’s a reputation that is beginning to feel a bit uncomfortable because it creates expectations impossible for me to meet.

Up until last year, I hadn’t even seen a hole in one, much less had one myself. Every guy or gal who plays the game aspires to record an ace — a ‘1’ on a par 3. Typically, it’s a short iron shot into the green from the tee box, watching the ball fly or roll directly into the hole sans shots two or more. A hole in one is the goal of low, mid and high handicappers world-wide. Most professional golfers have a bunch of these. Most amateurs have none. The odds are 12,700 to 1 for the average joe-hack to ever claim a par-3 ‘1.’
