Bird Homestead sees 1st official hole-in-one

Sterling resident Scott Sundberg recently accomplished what all golfers dream about.

He hit a hole-in-one.

 

The once-in-a-lifetime shot occurred Tuesday night on the eighth hole at Bird Homestead Golf Course during a round of scramble play.

Sundberg, 38, pulled a 7-wood from his bag, stepped to the tee and took a swing from 173 yards out on the par 3.

"It was beautifully struck ball - slight fade, landed on the green, one-hopped about 6 or 7 feet from the hole and went in," Sundberg said.

The course's owner, Pat Bird, said it's the first official hole-in-one since the course opened eight years ago.

Steve Tachick also accomplished the feat on No. 8, but it didn't go down as an official ace because the shot came on a provisional ball.

Said Bird: "It was wonderful. Scotty was jumping 10 feet in the air. We were really happy to see that."
