What a pro!

We live on a golf course and Jerry golfs our course a couple of times a week. Now, even though he golfs on a regular basis he is by no means ready for the senior tour. I believe he usually hits in the high 90's/low 100's for 18 holes.

Occasionally he will golf elsewhere and today was one of those days. He was participating in a charity tournament with a few friends at a course across town. Before leaving for the tournament he was complaining that he wasn't really thrilled about going. It was a hot day today and he doesn't really like tournament formats. It's a good thing he went because he got his first hole-in-one! I'm so happy for him.

When someone gets a hole-in-one they have to buy a round of drinks for everyone in the clubhouse. Luckily his foursome was one of the first finished and there were only a few people at the bar so it wasn't too expensive. He has also won what was described to him as an electronics package. Someone will contact him to give him more info about that.

I think I'm more excited for him than he is!

wow! Yay for him!

They always put the tees way back for tournament holes for the hole-in-one contests I've played in so I have no chance at all.

WOW! That is an achievement to be proud of. Now, if he can only remember how he did it!
Congratulations, Jerry.
