I was playing in the Veterans BB Stableford at Blankney Golf Club and not playing particularly well.
We walked up to the 7th tee and I positioned myself directly opposite the flag. I hit the ball well and straight and thought thank God it is going to miss all of the bunkers. I watched the ball bounce onto the green and move what seemed slowly towards the hole. I realised that I could not see it anymore so thought it must have gone beyond the flag and that the flag was obscuring my view. My golf partners were standing at the side of the tee box and said that they couldn't see the ball either and were very excited. I was the last to tee off so we all scurried towards the green and sure enough the ball was actually in the hole.
