No trophy after getting third ace

Hole No. 16, 184 yards, 5-iron

I've had three holes in one in my life, but this was the most memorable.

We were playing in two groups. Our group, and there was another group behind us.

The shot was over the bunker. It's kind of guarded by a big trap in the front, so I couldn't see if it went in or not.

When I went on the green and the ball wasn't there, I kind of figured it might have been in the cup.

I started yelling "hole in one baby!"

I guess our other friends playing on the hole behind us heard me and they all said I had to buy them lunch after.

However, on the next hole I wasn't thinking, and I teed off with the same ball.

I lost the ball. I don't know how I lost it. I hit it on the right side of the fairway and I couldn't find it after that.

My friends were laughing. I was still in shock, so I wasn't too upset.

My friend, Fred Denault, told me I should buy a plaque and put "In Memory of," since I lost the ball.
