Yet Another Youngster Aces a Par 3!

Recently we at US Hole In One have noticed a trend amongst most of the people in our blogs who have recently got holes in one. They’re really young!

Lohud.com, a newspaper of New York’s Lower Hudson valley recently did an article on 13 year old John Longo. The youngster teed it up on the 112-yard sixth hole at Sunny Hill Golf Course and aced it without a problem. He used a wedge to get the job done. The article informs us that his father, Ron Longo, “was reading a book a week ago near the clubhouse at Sunny Hill Golf Course, a Catskill resort where the White Plains family has a lake house. He was recovering from surgery, and let the 13-year-old play with Christopher Medeot, a friend and hockey teammate from home.”

As soon as young John made the hole in one he called his father. Ron Longo’s account in the article was as follows:

"It was the first time I sent John on the course without me," Ron said. "It was a beautiful day, so I was sitting there reading a book when the phone rang. He was real excited, 'Dad, I just got a hole-in-one!' I thought it was a joke at first. I said, 'Put Chris on the phone.' And he was like, 'Mr. Longo, I swear to God it went in. John got a hole-in-one.' I couldn't believe it."

John was documented as saying:

"I've driven the green a couple of times, but I've never gotten close to the hole," said John, who has been playing for two years. "We called my dad, then went on to the seventh hole. We didn't celebrate too much because we didn't want to make a lot of noise. It was kind of funny because I looked at this plaque they have of all the holes-in-one before we played, and the first one was in 1968 on the same hole."

What’s even more interesting is that, according to the LoHud there have been three aces by three area middle school kids on three consecutive days last weekend (today being August 14). That holds so true to the title of this article. These youngsters are acing par 3’s all over the place. We congratulate them.
