Willenborg notches ace

Ric Willenborg hit his third career hole-in-one, Nov., 8 at the Dyersville Golf & Country Club.

He used a pitching wedge on the par-three third hole.

“The ball bounced on the green maybe 12 feet from the hole and started rolling toward it,” said Willenborg. “I kept thinking while I was watching it fly that I hoped it would make the green and then it did and then it disappeared. I still wasn’t sure it actually went in, I thought maybe it was behind the pin. But what was probably the best about the whole thing, I was playing with my son and granddaughter on a beautiful day in November, making it extra special.”

Willenborg was playing with Seth, Kayley and Bec Willenborg.
