Hole In One Record Falls to 102 Year Old Golfer

Congratulations Elsie McLean!!

At the ripe old age of 102, that's correct, one hundred and two, Elsie McLean became the oldest known person ever to record a hole in one. Ms. McLean reportedly aced the par 3 fourth hole at Bidwell Park in California from 100 yards away using her trusty driver. In doing so, Elsie broke the previous mark for oldest person to hit a hole in one that had been held since 2001 by Harold Stilson. Mr. Stilson made a hole in one at Deerfield Country Club in Florida when he was 101.

Due to the blind tee shot at the fourth hole at Bidwell Park, Ms. McLean reportedly didn't even know about her achievement at first. It wasn't until one of her playing partners checked the hole that their search for her tee shot ended and they happily realized that the shot was an ace. It was also the first hole in one of her golfing life.

Congratulations, once again, to Ms. Elsie McLean on your fine achievement.
