Tell us the Good Stuff!
3 million to one shot
The golf season started with an explosion of “Hole in Ones” on Saturday April 12th at Beacon Hill Country Club, a private member owned golf club in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. Three different amateur golfers had aces on the same day within one hour of each other during the club’s annual opening tournament.
Greg Esterhal of HoleInOneInsurance.Com calculated the odds of Saturday’s feat happening at 3 million to one.
Dr. Robert Breeden started the day off with his hole in one on the 142 yard 9th hole using a 7 Iron. No more than 20 minutes later, Jim Beatty claimed his ace on 195 yard 18th hole with a 3 Hybrid club and thirty minutes later Chuck Anttonen completed the trifecta on the 9th hole using a pitching wedge.
Chuck Edwards Head golf professional at Beacon Hill said “Over the twenty years that I have been head pro at BHCC, there has never been more than one ace in a single day, to have three in the same tournament on our opening day is just amazing”
The club had 5 “hole in ones” in all of 2013.
No doubt, 2014 is going to be a very special golf season at Beacon Hill.
