how close is CLOSE? for an ace

Just read something about how close any of us have come to getting an
ace without actually getting one. On a in the club house of the club i
grew up playing on was an account of how a member had, during the winter
some years before, scored an "ace" on a par three that was disallowed by
the rules of golf. Seems that this fellow's ball had come to rest
against the pin, but because the hole was frozen over with water up to
and including the entire hole, his ball could not and did not enter into
the hole. Rules of gold require that the ball actualy fall into the hole
before it is "in" the hole. I dare anyone to suggest that they ever came
closer to an ace than this story tells!!!!!!!
