Famed basketball coach Summitt makes first ace

RSS

Former University of Tennessee's women's basketball coach Pat Summitt is enjoying the retired life.

Summitt made her first hole-in-one on Friday at Sevierville GC, just outside of Knoxville, Tenn. Using a 7-iron, Summitt holed out from 112 yards at No. 17th - a par 3 over water.

'Of course, we didn't know it was that good,' Debbie Antonelli, former North Carolina State player, said according to ESPN.com. 'When we got up to the flag, we were looking behind the hole because we thought it had rolled past the cup. Then I walked up to the cup, looked down, and said, 'You're never going to believe this.''

After 38 years at the helm of the Volunteers' women's basketball program, Summitt reitred in April with 1,098 career wins and eight national championships.

Summitt retired less than a year after it was revealed she had been diagnosed with early-onset dementia.
