Holy cow! A hole in one
Alex Chin, 11, who attends Pleasanton Middle School, hit his first hole in one on the 15th hole at Las Positas Golf Course in Livermore on July 2.
"I was excited and shocked at the same time when I got the hole in one," Chin said. "I just aimed the ball straight at the hole."
Chin has been a Junior Golfer at Las Positas since he was 8 years old under the Director of Instruction Andy Nisbet and has been playing golf since he was 4.
"My dad liked golf and I watched it on television," said Chin.
He has played this particular course about 15 times but it is the daily practice that helped him achieve the feat.
"I practice 15-20 hours a week, either in my back yard, at the golfing range or at Las Positas," Chin said.
As for the future he will continue to play for the next few years and follow his favorite golfer Phil Mickelson, ranked No. 2 in the world, on television.
