‘#1 FATHER’ ACES #9 IN CREWE

Golfer makes rare hole-in-one on par-4 hole

Father’s Day 2019 produced a special moment for Lee Simmons of Crewe.

Simmons, 40, was golfing Sunday with his wife, Shelley, and two sons, Eli and Tucker, when he aced the par-4 ninth hole at Crewe Country Club.

It was his first hole-in-one and a moment he’ll cherish.

Simmons teed-off with his Ping G-400 10.5-degree loft driver on the 253-yard hole, which runs parallel to Rt. 460 and is protected by water on the right and a greenside bunker in front of the green.

The wind was blowing leftto-right, and Simmons hit a fade to ride that breeze. He said he knew it was a good shot, but he had no idea it was perfect until moments later.
