Tiger Woods tells the story of his first hole-in-one as an 8-year-old









Speaking to a gigantic crowd at a golf clinic, Tiger Woods revealed that it’s been nearly two decades since Tiger Woods celebrated his last ace on a par-3. Woods recalled the story of his very first hole-in-one, which he was too small to see roll in the cup.

“I’m 42. I’ve had 19 hole-in-ones. The last one I made was in 1999. It’s been a little while. My first one though… it was at Heartwell Golf Course in Long Beach, California. I was eight years old. I hit it and was too short to see it.

So the ball carries the bunker, it rolls into the hole. Everybody in my group celebrates but me. I can’t see that high. So, one of the guys picks me up, shows me there’s no ball on the green. I’m excited – I run to the green, pick the ball out of the hole and I’m celebrating. And the kids came down and said ‘you idiot, your golf bag’s up on the tee.’ So I had to go back up and get my golf bag.”
