Coming up aces
We’re happy to announce the holes in one Cape Region golfers make. Now there’s an organization ready to help.
The United States Golf Register says it is “the nation’s official historical registry” for all aces made in the United States.
For example, we recently received word from them that Rick Jalot of Georgetown, DE made a hole in one on the 103-yard par 3 18thhole at Stenger’s Par 3 near Milton. He used a pitching wedge, and John and Dave Jalot witnessed it.
The same organization also let us know that Gregory Sherman of Lewes used a 7-iron on the 127-yard par 3 fifth hole at Rum Pointe Seaside Golf Links near Ocean City, MD to make his ace on June 12. Brad Gardner saw it happen.
Congratulations to both.
