Obligatory - Charlie Kautz, I Hate You
If you're one that follows this website closely, you know that hole-in-one stories usually get me fired up (well, at least tongue in cheek, fired up).
Why? Because I've never made an ace. Ever. E-V-E-R. I'm not a mathematician of sorts, but I'd estimate that I've played about 4.6 million golf holes in my life (approx.), and none of those holes have ended with me writing "1" on my a scorecard.
The only saving grace? I've never played with anyone that made an ace either. To me, a hole-in-one is a myth, much like the second gunman or the fact that real people actually can look like Mila Kunis (call me!). I've never seen one, so like a beautiful unicorn glistening in the sun, they don't really happen.
But what happens on Thursday at Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, Calif.? Charlie Kautz, a public relations coordinator for TaylorMade, crushes my dreams. Yep, Kautz, a good golfer and funny dude, knocked it in for an ace on the par-3 6th hole, crushing any hope that aces weren't a real thing.
So, Mr. Kautz, I must let you know -- I officially hate you. You can join all these people if you'd like.
