It’s a great feeling, I got one the other night…….through the windmill, off two boards and in!!!!

Congrats Roger! You owe all of us a drink! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Congrats Roger!! Must have been all those practice rounds played with friends!!!!

Way to go Roger!! Best Golf Instructor I ever had.

Awesome, couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. I’m still waiting for #1 ๐Ÿ™

Way to go Roger!! It had to be the shirt! #FriendsofJim ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Great shot Roger. That’s a tough hole. Congratulations!

Congratulations Roger

My teammate at Richmond

Great Shot Roger

I know it’s a big deal to make a hole in one. When Al went to work for Wacovia they had a golf culture so he had to buy a set of clubs and go out and learn how to play golf so he could hang with the executives. The first time they went out he hit a hole in one๏ฟผ. On the same he hit somebody on the head๏ฟผ. And that was his golfing career. Pretty much did everything you’re supposed to do

Yay!!! What a great feeling that must have been. Congratulations!

Wow!! Way to go Roger!

He also made a double eagle on the last hole of the section assistants in 1998 to sneak into a tie for second with myself and one other. Rick Schuler was the winner. Talk about taking $ out your pocket. All is forgiven but not forgotten ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿพ‍โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yeah Roger! That’s great. Keith told me about it when he got home. Keep swinging ‘em.

Congrats Roger ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‰ Good things come to those that wait ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿป

Well done Roger!

Rog, what took you so long??

Congratulations Roger!!!!!!

Congratulations Roger!๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘Š

Well done Roger!! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฝ‍โ™‚๏ธ Congratulations ๐Ÿพ

CONGRATULATIONS ROGER WHAT # HYBRID DID YOU USE ON THE 105 YD.HOLE.Quin

May many more follow Roger...Congrats!

Nice one, well done!! I’m still trying to join the club!!

Congratulations Roger!
