I was playing golf with my brother and his friends when I was visiting them in Des Moines. We got to the ninth hole and I calculated the yardage to be around 105 yards. I got out my 54° wedge and hit the ball solidly. The ball landed about 2 feet short of the hole bounced about a foot beyond a hole and backed up and went in. I threw my hands up in the air and exclaimed “It finally happened! I am 64 years old and have been a high school golf coach for 37 years. I have been playing golf since I was 8 years old. I have had many close calls, but this time it went in!.
