But that hasn't hurt his golf game.
The 61-year-old retired school administrator from the Spokane Valley aced the 140-yard fourth hole Wednesday at The Links golf course in Post Falls. It was his second hole-in-one in two years.
His shot Wednesday was witnessed by Titan Morlan, a greenskeeper at the Post Falls links. Stanley, playing alone, didn't see where the ball landed and assumed it fell short.
'I felt foolish looking in the cup -- that's usually the last place I'd look -- but there it is,' Stanley said.
