Phil Recker not only got his first-ever ace Sept. 15 at the Dyersville Golf & Country Club, but his was the first of two on the day.

Recker’s came in the morning, while playing with Tom, Lois, Ed and Mary Lou Burlage. He hit 9-iron to number three, “a hard rolling shot that would have gone way past the hole if it hadn’t hit the pin square. It was pretty lucky it went in.”

Later in the day, Jim Boeckenstedt got one during men’s league play.
