17 Year Old Hits Hole In One :: “Happy Gilmore” Style!

Most people would assume that to hit a hole in one you must be a pretty decent golfer, considering an ace is one of the most sought out challenges in the game of golf. Surprisingly, in most cases all you need is a lot of luck. Luck combined with a ton of strength is what scored Keith McCall his first hole in one. The ace occurred at Brookeville Golf and Country Club on hole number 12, McCall drove from the white tees, 273 yards from the green.

McCall had a slightly different approach to the green from the far par 4. He drove the ball “Happy Gilmore” style as he called it which for those who haven’t seen the movie means that you stand behind the ball and walk up to the ball while you swing the club. Contact with the ball is not always easy but when you make contact the ball comes off the club fast and goes far! McCall said the shot wasn’t pretty to say the least but made its way toward the green. McCall never expected to hit the drive that far considering the group in front of him still hadn’t finished putting yet. It was actually one of the other golfers in the group ahead of him that found the ball in the hole.

McCall was playing with his buddy, Blake Hunter who was even more excited than McCall at the hole in one. McCall is not one to brag about his accomplishment and even though it was the clubs first hole in one on number 12, McCall still doesn’t consider himself a good golfer. I bet others at the club beg to differ on that point!
