Golf Tips from the King Of Aces Mancil Davis

On this website, Mancil Davis, the King of Aces, is called the official world record-holder for holes in one (50) and double eagles (10), although Norman Manley is said to have made 59 "aces", including 4 in 1979, but little more seems to be known about his feats, whereas Mancil Davis is quite well known.

Mancil Davis has made a hole in one with every club except putter, PW and SW with the longest hole in one being 379 yards and the shortest hole in one being 124 yards. In 1967 he had eight aces and
in fact three aces in five days in June of that year.

What is his secret?

Here is what he says:


Picture in your mind's eye the entire shot from start to finish, with the desired result firmly implanted in your mind. With that result still pictured, step up and fire away. Visualize in vivid color the image of the ball falling into the cup - or picture the flight of the ball to the desired spot.

WOW. Is that all there is to it?

In other words, VISUALIZE your shot in each case, as if it were a short putt into the hole. Then Concentrate ONLY on the target.

Listen, could this be the key to better golf on EVERY shot?

Golf Is a Great Game

Golf is one of the greatest of all individual sports. It is a wonderful sport for young people, to permit them to spend a great deal of time in the fresh air and to help them learn discipline and self-control. No one plays golf well without first mastering himself. This is the first lesson learned by every novice golfer - that golf is a sport like no other, requiring precise coordination of nearly every muscle in the body and demanding mental concentration second to no other sport.

Golf is a wonderful game, but at the same time it is an extremely difficult game to master. Ask anyone who plays it.

It is not without reason that golf has historically been seen as a "game of gentlemen", and of course, in our modern day, it also a game for the "gentle ladies". Not only can golf put our physical and mental abilities to a very stern test in our younger days, but golf can be played an entire lifetime, and well into an advanced age. Golf can help people to remain fit and vigorous and to retain a healthy attitude about life and living in every age category.

GolfPundit will be commenting upon this terrific game in future posts.
