Congrats on the Ace! If it were me I probably would have shot a +9, too...on THAT hole. :)

 ;D ;D ;D....I do get a snow-man here and there.

CONGRATULATIONS!  8) 8) 8) ... in 2008, I won a fancy looking Golf kit, clubs (or whatever they are called) bag and golf shoes (which did not fit my feet), during a raffle at an office event ... but I never played golf and I don't know how to play golf ... the whole kit was sitting in the house occupying space, in the hope that I'd one day learn and start playing golf, which never happened so 2 years later my wife sold it to a colleague of hers ... I let her keep the money, so I could have an excuse to spend money on new lenses for my camera ... I still occasionally use the Golf kit sale as an excuse to buy new camera gear ;D :-[ ... well a Man's gotta do what he wants to do by hook or crook ;D

 ;D ;D ;D

I don't think I've ever known of anyone who got a hole-in-one. I thought t was just stuff of legends ....

Well, congrats on the achievement! Must be a great feeling. Sorry to hear about the rather dissapointing prize, I mean they could've given you a toaster or a kettle it would be more useful!

 ;D

Well, I like the M, maybe you could give it another chance? Or just sell it and use the money to buy decent filters a new bag or 1/30th of a 400mm f/2.8 II!  :P

The company I work for opened a golf tournament, to support American Cancer Society. With 2 kids (2 & 4yrs), I couldn’t recall the last time hitting balls at the range, therefore, I didn’t expect to win any prices from the tournament.

It turned out, Hole #14, par 3, 165yards, #7 iron – I got my very 1st HOLE-IN-ONE ;D ;D ;D. I thought I going get a 1D X for that, it turned out EOS-M + 22mm. Final score +9. 

I thought I would share my "HAPPY STORY" with everyone here.

Congrats! The hole in one is the bigger prize here for sure.

You mean to tell me you had a hole in one at a golf outing and all you got was an EOS-M?  What a terrible event!  At any of the golf outings I have golfed at (most charity outings), the MINIMUM for acing a par 3 is like $10,000.  Usually you win a car or motorcycle.  The EOS-M would be the "closest to the pin" prize.

Congrats anyway, still an amazing feat.
