Boy hits a hole-in-one - again!

Original post made on Apr 18, 2011

It's supposed to be the shot of a lifetime but Alex Chin has hit a hole-in-one twice -- and he's only 12. Last summer, at age 11, he aced the 15th hole at Las Positas Golf Course in Livermore. Then Monday he delivered a hole-in-one on the 5th hole at the Pleasanton Golf Center. "I think it was a combination of skill and luck," he said.

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!
