Golfer Scores Hole in One

By BY JEROME WICKER,

Allen Harris scored his sixth hole in one at Cedar Creek Golf Course on May 30, 2019. This is a par 3 which is approximately 100 yards from the senior tee box to the green. This is one of the smaller greens on the course and a player must hit the ball across the small stream to an elevated green.

Allen used a Wilson Ultra 5 iron and a Taylormade golf ball to make this amazing shot. 

This was the second hole in one on hole # 3 for Allen. Allen also has two hole in ones on hole #9, one from each set of tee boxes. He has another hole in one on hole #11. The other hole in one was at Forrest, MS.

Allen’s amazing shot was witnessed by his wife, Jean, and Robert Daugherty. Robert was not playing with Allen but witnessed Allen on the green removing his ball from the hole.

To the best of my knowledge Allen Harris, at the age of 88, is the oldest golfer at Cedar Creek Golf Course. I congratulate him on his ability and stamina to continue to play the game. Congratulations Allen on your outstanding golf shot.
