Boy hits a hole-in-one - again!

Good for you Alex! I've been playing for longer than you've been walking and I'm yet to get my first ACE. My wife actually bought me a hole-in-one trophy several years back because I told her it was sure to happen soon, yet I still don't have the ball to attach to the trophy.

I'm happy for your success on the course, but I'm most impressed by your desire to get good grades and attend Stanford. Keep up the good work young man!
