near miss for $25K

I played in a scramble on Monday on a rdiculously windy day.  there was a "hole in one" hole worth $25,000 that came up about mid way through our round.  The spotter said that only 3 people had hit the green - like i said, the wind was brutal.  178 yards.  Terrible distance for me.  I struck a 6 iron and I swear half way there i was practically spending the money.  It never left the flag.  It ended up two feet directly behind the hole.  I know that's not exactly the closest, but given the circumstances it was... awful.  I mean I wished I had hooked it into the woods (my normal 168 yard shot) instead of coming so close.  So I thought it would be an interesting story to share and also to see if anyone here has holed out for a big prize or if you have come very close.

So sad to hear that the two lovebirds couldn't sustain the magic.  Who would have guessed a separation after 15 months?

Infinity xMOI

19 August 2009 - 08:35 PM

First of all - WOW!!  It has been a long time since I've been here.  Anyone with kids in travel softball or baseball will know my pain.  But actually spending the summer watching my 10 year old play ball beats golf anytime.  Anyway, I started a thread last August about component recommendations and based on a couple of posts I decided to get the Infinity XMOI.  I already had a shaft, an Accra T-60 (M5), so I went to a professional club builder/Infinity dealer and he buitl the club.  I got it in April.  This is not exactly a timely review.  I remeber my first swing with it - the loud sound scared the crap out of me, and I thought to myself, "what a hunk of junk!"  I hit 6 consecutive pull hooks (those of you who have played with me know that shot quite well), but then I made an adjustment with the alignment aid on the club head and i really got into a rhythm.  Since then i've played about 5 rounds of golf.  Yep, that's been my summer.  I am striking the ball very well.  I can't really score but that's because I just don't have much of a short game - lack of feel aroung the greens and such.  But getting back to the point - without question this is the best driver I've ever owned.  I played with my brother in law last week for the first time in a couple of years (he lives in MN and I live in ohio, but soon moving to South Dakota), and he was amazed at the improvement in my driving.  This is definitely not the longest driver I've ever played, but i am consistently straight.  High and straight.  And very forgiving!!  My misses still seem to find the fairway or just off, not OB.  Thanks to all who gave me the recommendation.  i'm not a great equipment reviewer as I lack a lot of the technical knowledge that most of you guys have, but I just wanted to say that if you wanted to find an inexpensive alternative to Taylor Made or Callaway, give this a look.  I got the Accra shaft on E-Bay for about 30 bucks and the club head and assembly cost me an additional 100 or so.  Well worth it.  But now I need some wedges (mine are at least 6 years old).  Recommendations??

I love Freddy Couples and all, but is he really the best pitchman for a putting training aid?

Component recommendations?

I just picked up a shaft (Accra T-60) and I'm looking to experiment with a new club head.  It has been ages since I've thought of  components.  I think the last one I bought was a Bangomatic or something like that.  Anything out there that's new and popular?  Looking for some suggestions.  Thanks.
