Another Blind Golfer Makes Hole In One

On August 19th, 2007, Sheila Dummond, a legally blind golf made a hole in one at the 144 yard par 3 4th hole at Mahoning Valley Country Club in Lehighton, PA. At the time, it was believed to be the first reported ace ever made by a blind, female golfer.

Fast forward a few months and we have yet another spectacular shot from a blind golfer. Leo Fiyalko, 92 years old and legally blind, got his first hole in one after stiking a 5-iron 110 yards on the 5th hole at Cove Cay Country Club in Clearwater, Florida. Leo, a seven handicap golfer in his prime, has been playing golf for sixty years, but never had a hole in one until this January. Sadly, Leo did not win a prize for his remarkable achievement, just the congratulations of his playing partners.

Foresite Sports congratulates Sheila and Leo on their fantastic holes in one!
