A blind ace for Hays

Hays, an 8-handicap, said it was the second time he had picked up a hole-in-one and the second time he had done it in a tournament.

Bob Hays shows off the lucky 6-iron he used to collect a hole-in-one at the Men’s Jubilee Golf Tournament this month.

He never saw it, but the smile on his playing partner’s face told him something good had just happened.

Bob Hays had pulled out his 6-iron on the 165-yard, Par 3 fourth hole at the Prince Rupert Centennial Course during the Men’s Jubilee Golf Tournament

“I hit a nice little draw and [the ball] landed on the front and rolled down the hill. The pin was at the back left,” Hays said. “One of the other guys had a cart and he was up there first and didn’t see anything … he walks up [to the hole] looks at me, smiles and gives me a thumbs up.

“It was in the hole.”

Hays, an 8-handicap, said it was the second time he had picked up a hole-in-one and the second time he had done it in a tournament but it was a long time ago as a 16-year-old.
