The local author of the Pickleball Zen book series changed his sport, took golf lessons, and scored his first hole-in-one.
Paul Hudanich, who resides in the Village of Dunedin, got the hole-in-one this past Tuesday at Escambia Executive Course Hole #7. He used a pitching wedge on the 104 yard hole. Even though he has played golf his whole life, he just finished a series of lessons last week changing his golf swing drastically. It seems to have paid off with his first hole-in-one ever. It was hit directly into the sun.
“I didn’t see it go in the hole, but I heard it hit the stick and I said to my partner if I don’t see it on the green when I get there, I am checking the cup. And there it was,” he said.
