If you want to see the impressive shot that earned Barton a nice chunk of change, check it out on FanSided.com.

An ace is a great thing to witness. I was at the green when Nordqvist hit her ace on the 17th at the Solheim -- great shot, given the circumstances..

The only hole i can hit in one is the large slew beside my local courses first tee box.

On a positive note Harry, you're subsidizing the living of the person who retrieves your wayward shots.

Late last fall , i took my Dad to our local course. Every once in a while i seem to have a sick desire to spend a few hours with my Dad absolutely schooling me for a round of golf. We walk up to the first tee and start stretching , dear ole Dad looks up at me and says "perhaps you should just chuck one or two in there right now and save us some time"

Aim at the slew. After all, how often does the ball go where you're aiming?

Exactly ! He is retired and plays once or twice a week for 5 months. I play 6-8 times a year , so it's very humbling when we share a round.
