what do you think are the chances of hitting a hole in one?
according to golf digest, it’s one in 12,500 – which is precisely why i don’t golf. i will never understand why people think it’s so much fun to hit a ball around the grass to get it into a hole that it would take 12,500 swings, to actually achieve 100% success, just one time. . . . but people do love it – and my mom is one of those people – and today she got a hole in one!
here she is; the hole-in-one winner:
and because this is not her first hole-in-one, she is eligible for the multiple hole-in-one winner gold star award!
“It took me seventeen years to get three thousand hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course.”

pop-pop joe was my mom’s father. i didn’t know him very well because he died when i was only in third or fourth grade. my memories of him include donuts. he always brought us donuts when we saw him and he was always happy. pop-pop joe was a big man and a huge golfer. apparently he was quite the athlete in his younger years and attended prep school on both a baseball and football scholarship. he was a scratch golfer – runner up for ct state champ. he died way too young but i think he had a whole lot of fun along the way.
today he would have been 100 years old. happy birthday pop – pop joe!
