103-year-old PGA member the oldest to make an ace

RSS

Golf is the game of a lifetime, all right: 103-year-old Gus Andreone is now the oldest golfer to ever record a hole-in-one after he made the eighth ace of his career Wednesday in South Florida. 

The previous record was held by Elsie McLean, who was 102 when she dunked her tee shot in 2007. 

Andreone, the PGA of America’s oldest member, used driver on a 113-yard hole at Palm Aire Country Club.

“Miracles do happen once in a while,” the 75-year PGA member told the association’s website, but this might just be the luckiest man on the planet. He also said that he won the Pennsylvania Lottery in 1983 in addition to two wins in the Fantasy Five Lottery in Florida. 

The centenarian still plays three times a week, often shooting his age, and apparently can’t stop making aces 75 years after recording his first. Prior to Wednesday’s 1, he last made a hole-in-one in the 1990s. 

Hey, don’t mind us, still stuck on 0.
