One more for the Ladies

18-HolerDana Barnes cards an ace on 17.

Dana Barnes is joined by her pals after jarring it on 17.

Stamford Women’s Golf Association (SWGA) member, Dana Barnes, wasn’t thinking about making a one when she waltzed off the green on 16 during that club’s 18-Holer Event, but one 6-iron later, and that week’s winning foursome witnessed golf’s greatest moment for Dana: an ace!

Dana used her Titleist AP2 irons, which were a given to her by her friends for her (can’t recall which) birthday ;-). This was Dana’s first hole in one, but I doubt it’ll be her last. She was in good company, as all of the golfers in her group have had their own aces too. “As I walked off the tee, the girls said: ‘It’s in the hole, it’s in the hole!’ I’m like, ‘yeah, okay'”, Dana said, smiling.

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer golfer. Dana rocks.
You wish that was your ball!!!
