Another Youngster Aces a Par 3 Hole

Kids these days! In one of our earlier blogs, 11 year old Ben McCormick from Colchester, VT got a hole in one. We thought it would end there but we were so wrong.

This story takes us to Portage la Prairie in Manitoba, Canada where another 11 year old holed out on a par 3. Cpheraldleader.com tells us that Dylan Johnson did it in just his second year of playing the game on Wednesday. The same website then says that Johnson, 11, aced the par-3 12th hole at the Portage Golf Club while playing with his grandfather, Jim, putting a perfect shot in the hole with his King Cobra hybrid club. Young Dylan was quoted as saying:

"I hit the ball, and I told my Grandpa that it looked like it was so good that it might go in the hole," Dylan said Wednesday, who fired an 88 with the magical number 1 on his card. "So, I walked away, and he said 'It's in the hole'."

According to the report Jim said that Dylan at first didn't seem to believe that it had gone in. "He didn't even wait for it to land," Jim said. "He turned around and walked towards the cart, and I was standing watching it. It landed right in front of the pin, took one bounce, hit the pin and dropped in.

Dylan ,as we already mentioned, has been playing for two years and but who knows how many more hole in ones he’ll get in the future? All we know is that this is a worthy achievement. The article on Cpheraldleader.com cements this point when it reminds us that, “some golfers can go a lifetime without ever recording the elusive hole-in-one.”
