This is a story I just have to share. It is something that we all dread and unfortunately it happened to Marlin. It was a hole in one, that was not a hole in one. Not sure what I mean, then read on!
Marlin’s second shot went in the hole for par! I only saw the same thing on TV when Fred Couples hole his second shot at the 1999 Players Championship for par!
To add a bit of something to Marlin’s story, the person who chipped in for birdie to win the hole was my friend Jimmy. He was telling me about it yesterday. I told him that I need to hear more of the story when over a libation and we agreed to meet up after my treatments so he could give me all the details.
I feel for Marlin; I am sure I would be happy and sad at the same time. I wonder, taking the score out, could this be considered a hole in one with an asterisk since he hit his second shot from the teeing ground? What do you think?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
