5-Year-Old Golfer Hits Hole in One

Sun Aug 11, 9:31 AM ET

TYLER, Texas (AP) - Look out Tiger: Here comes Mason Aldredge.

The 5-year-old Texas golfer already has his first hole in one.

He aced a 106-yard hole at Eagle Bluff Country Club in Bullard, Texas, on Saturday using a Big Snoopy driver.

Mason's father and younger brother watched as the shot traveled about 100 yards in the air, bounced on the green and hit the flag stick.

It had just enough backspin to roll into the cup.

His dad seems to be even more thrilled than Mason. Philip Aldredge says just talking about what his son did gives him "chill bumps."

Been playin the damned game for 35 aces! Several eagle 2's and 3's....but no 'HOLES IN ONE'!!!! Had a 4 iron from the fairway trap from 175 yards go in the hole.....but never a hole-in- one!! Even had a couple hang on the lip from the tee......BUT NO HOLES IN ONE.....EVER! Driven the green on a couple pr 4's.....but never in the hole!!

My clubs aren't the most expensive, but not a Snoopy set either....

WHY IS THAT?? just not right man.......

You're probably just trying too hard. Do not think about hitting the ball, you need to BE THE BALL. Relax and let the karma of the universe flow through your being. That is what this kid did, but adults think too much.

I remember your advice:

'Gunga galunga, gunga -- gunga galunga'.

I just wanna get an ace.......just once ya know.....

Sure, sure, get one ace and you'll want another, then another. We'll never hear the end of it. Just get your putz in the hole.

Look up the nearest twelve step program near you. In the long run you will be glad that you did.

BTW. I managed a Babe Ruth team this year. It was aggravating, stressful, worrisome and ultimately................ still a lot of fun. I hope you and your son get back into it.

High school ball is so different. You have to let someone else be in charge!
