After completing the second hole, daughter Deb Parsons asked her father if any of his previous 11 holes-in-one had been on El Santiago course.

“No, but you would think I would have had one on this course by now,” he responded.

His very next shot was the hole-in-one, witnessed by his daughter, son-in law Dave Parsons and guest Mike Cook.
