Golf Digest say the chances of an amateur ever hitting a hole-in-one are 12,750 to 1. Yet, here is this astounding woman, blind, yet, for 26 years, defying unthinkable odds, and with her driver smacking that golf ball directly into the cup…with one stroke.
EHIGHTON, Pa. — Sheila Drummond didn’t need to see her hole-in-one. She heard it.
Playing with her husband and coach, Keith, and two friends in a steady rain, the 53-year-old Drummond hit a driver on the hole. The shot cleared a water hazard, flew between traps and landed on the green, where it hit the flagstick before dropping into the hole.
“They were saying, ‘It’s a great shot,’ and then I heard it hit the pin,” Drummond said.
“For a hole-in-one, you have to hit it onto the green, so it’s a little bit of skill and a lot of luck.”
What a truly admirable woman. No whining, no excuses. I express to her my esteem and sincere congratulations.
