It took Jeff Schwartz more than 30 years, but he finally got what he wanted Thursday – a hole in one.
Schwartz hit a tee shot in the hole at Iron Eagle Golf Course. It happened at 1:15 p.m. He hit a 7-iron 140 yards. The ball hit about 10 feet in front of the pin, took two hops and disappeared in the hole.
“I started screaming like a little girl,” Schwartz said. “I never thought it would happen.”
Schwartz’s playing partner, Dave Broglin, witnessed the shot.
Schwarz plans to celebrate at the men’s league dinner at the course.
He said he normally plays the hole with an eight-iron, but there a little breeze blowing at him, so he took out his seven and tried to punch it low.
Overall, Schwartz had a good round, shooting a one-over-par 73. He had two double bogies, one on the front nine and one on the back. His second double bogey was on the 18th hole, where his concentration wandered. He said he was still thinking about his hole in one.
It’s not unusual for him to break 80, he said.
