A hole-in-one is a golfer's dream. An elusive dream.
But sometimes dreams come true.
Jung Park found that out recently at Northampton Valley Country Club, where he stepped up to the tee on the par-3, 172-yard third hole. He swung, hit his shot with a five iron and found his ball in the cup.
It was the first ace of his golfing career.
Aces are wild at Bensalem TOwnship Golf Club. John Lotkowski bested the fourth hole with an 8 iron shot from 146 yards out, while Leonard Knobbs scored an ace on the par-3 11th hole. He used a 9 iron to strike the perfect 144-yard shot. Vinay Shah sced the par-3, 190-yard sixth hole, using a 5 wood, while from the 162-yard tees Timothy Scanlon struck a great shot into the cup with a 3 iron.
Brittany Benvenuto played two strong rounds at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in Wisconsin, but failed to make the 36-hole cut.
Benvenuto carded 1-under-par 71s in both rounds but missed the cut by two strokes.
