Zitelman scores first ace

Dan Zitelman recorded his first-ever hole-in-one at Rolling Knolls June 4 while playing the ninth hole.

“I hit the ball, it bounced on the green and disappeared,” said Zitelman. “I turned around to the other guys and asked, ‘Did that go in? We weren’t sure if it just rolled off the back of the green, you know what number nine is like. So we got to the green and checked behind it to be sure. No ball, so we looked in the cup and there it was.”

Zitelman used a 7-iron on the par three 165-yard hole while playing with Mark Breitbach, Bill Mulcahy and Ron Digman.
