hat better time for a hole-in-one than when you are in the hunt for a club championship.
Such was the case for Morrisburg golfer, Lee Beaupre, during the final 18 club championship holes at the Morrisburg Golf Club on Sunday.
Beaupre was in good company, good hole-in-one company actually, when he stepped to the tee on the par three 11th hole which was playing to 130 yards.
When he hit, he knew he had made a good shot. “I could see it and I knew it was slowing down as it got to the hole.”
He, however, couldn’t quite tell if it had gone in or was resting in the shadow of the flag.
However, McNairn who has scored five aces, could see it, and said, “Lee it disappeared.”
Mann, who has had two holes-in-one, was also certain it had gone in.
Asked what Beaupre’s reaction was when he realized it really had gone in, Moore, (who has also had five aces) said, “Lee jumped as high as he could jump the Phil Mickelson jump.”
Beaupre has been golfing for 33 years and this is his first hole-in-one. The ace helped him to record a two-over-par 74 for a 153 total over the 36 hole tournament.
Bob Mann won the men’s championship with a 151, and Beaupre was the A flight champion.
