The summer of 2009 was kind to New Hope's Zachary Herr, both on and off the golf course.


Herr, 14, was awarded the United States Golf Association & American Junior Golf Association's Prestigious President's Award for contributions to the game both on and off the course.


He held his second annual Zach Attacks Cancer Tournament at Jericho National for the benefit of several charities, including the Fox Chase Cancer Center. In the two years the event has generated more than $85,000 for the charitable causes.

Who has 51 hole-in-one shots?

I don't know about you, but I love a good hole-in-one story.


This is most likely because --- I'm estimating here --- I've struck more than 9,000 shots on par-3 holes in my golfing career and have never garnered a hole-in-one on a regulation course.
