Long Description:

Let’s talk ACES this week!

I have had plenty of memorable aces, but one, in particular, seems to stand out above the rest.
In the summer of 2014, Bobby Brown and I traveled to Skellefteå, Sweden, home of Latitude 64, for some promotional videos. While there we participated in a tournament called The 81 Hole Challenge. That’s right – 81 holes in one day! This seems impossible to accomplish, but with 20 hours a day of sunlight, anything’s possible!

I mentioned to Bobby how cool it would be to have a Swedish ace on our visit, so this was my opportunity! I played pretty well throughout the event maintaining a decent sized lead the majority of the tournament. However, on my 81st hole, I turned to my group and said, ‘Well, this is my last shot at a Swedish ace!’ I was mostly joking but low and behold, SLEIGH-BELLS, my signature Truth found the chains and came to rest in the bottom of the bucket! While there was no ace pot, it was still to this day my most memorable shot, which honestly says a lot, because I’ve been fortunate enough to hit a couple $1000+ aces in my career. I also ended up winning the 81 hole challenge by over 15 strokes. Needless to say, it was a good day!
