Villager celebrates after hole-in-one while golfing with partner from Chicago

Sandy Lang scored a hole-in-one April 11 Hole #2 at Pelican Executive Golf Course in The Villages.

He hit if from 156 yards using a 5-iron.

“We didn’t actually see the ball go in the hole. We were hitting directly into the sun,” he said.

He thought it was close as he saw it hit near the pin.

“I couldn’t see the ball on the green when we got up there, so we spent a couple minutes looking behind the green for my ball,” he said.

Finally he asked if anyone had looked in the hole.

“My playing partner, Marty from Chicago, and I looked in the hole and there it was,” he said.
