10 holes in one…in one day?

Once again the latest hole in one news has us shaking our heads. The Star Tribune of Minneapolis, Minnesota reported on their website that “on July 2 at area courses, at least 10 golfers had holes-in-one and had them reported to the Star Tribune.” The report goes on to say that “for some it was their first and for others it was a second (or third) time around. Two came at the same course, on the same hole.” The Star Tribune managed to get 9 out of the 10 people to describe their indelible experiences.

The first account comes from Bob Steffen who aced the 175th 8th hole at Dwan golf course. He used a 6 iron and he said:

"I hit it a little short of the hole, but it rolled up on the back lip," Steffen said. "From where I stood, I thought it had stayed there. But then I got closer and I saw it was gone. It was in the hole.

The next stroke of excellence came from Lorraine Neuberger’s purely struck 5 wood shot made its way into the 16th hole at Meadowbrook Golf Course.

"Pure luck," she said. "It's nothing to brag about. If I was a championship golfer, maybe I could consider it skill, but for me, I just get lucky."

The article then took us to Wayzata Country Club where Linda Kiernan made a hole in one on the 17th hole. Her account was a follows:

"I saw it tracking toward the hole and, amazingly, it went in. I'm like 'Thank you Jerry, thank you!'"

Jerry is her loving husband who passed away. "He's why I learned to play," she said.

Lauryn Job and Scott Machut are next up. Lauryn’s ace came on the 97 yard 17th hole at Medina Golf & Country Club. She used a 52 degree wedge to get the job done. Scott followed suit on the 17th hole. His 9 iron from 132 yards had only one destination…the hole! "It's just fantastic," he said.

Next up is Doug Dehn whose hole in one came at Shadowbrooke Golf Course’s 9th hole. He hit a 5 wood from 160 yards.

Nowadays tour pros are booming their drivers over 300 yards. But who says you HAVE to hit it that far. Jake Halbert hit a precise driver on a 234 yard par 3. So precise that it went into the hole. His account to the Star Tribune :
"The wind was strong, I promise," Halbert said, tongue planted firmly in cheek.

The final two holes in one came from Tony Gutterman and Paul Nelson. Tony hit a 215 yard fade with a purely struck 5 iron whilst Paul Nelson’s hole in one is being called the mystery ace. This is because no one has been able to get his account. Now that was an action packed day!Our congratulations go out to all these people.

On a closing note, make sure you tell your tournament director about us. Foresite Sports is the name, affordable insurance is the game.
