They say that some people have all the luck and have had multiple holes-in-one. Well, for Robin Moreau that did seem to hold true. She waited 37 years to achieve her first ace. On the cold morning of March 5, playing with Linda Ingalls, Gail Ramirez and Laura Kim, Robin teed her ball on hole 10, hit a stellar shot with her Heaven Wood, 124 yards to a rear flag, avoiding trees, the bridge and a water hazard and watched as the ball disappeared into the hole. She was also playing a Callaway golf ball so it was a great for the Callaway brand. Congratulations to Robin and cheers! to those enjoying the celebratory glass of wine apres golf.
