Well, how about a hole in one? And this wasn’t just any hole in one. Ironically, Stavinoha’s ace came on the fourth hole, and on his 44th birthday.
“I was in disbelief,” Stavinoha said of his first-ever ace. “The hole was cut on a ridge, so I couldn’t really tell if it was in or not, but the guys in my group said, ‘That ball’s in the hole!’”
On Tuesday Stavinoha returned to the 170-yarder during his tournament round and made par. “I guess that hole just fits my eye or something.”
No tournament ace, but nonetheless one of the rarer hole-in-one stories you’ll ever hear.
