Ken Bazansky retrieves his hole-in-one ball.

Bazansky celebrates hole-in-one

During the 2014 Founders' Cup on Sat. July 12, Ken Bazansky sunk a hole-in-one on the 17th hole at the Prince Rupert Golf Course.

During the 2014 Founders’ Cup on Sat. July 12, Prince Rupert’s Ken Bazansky sunk a hole-in-one on the 17th hole at the Prince Rupert Golf Course.

His first ever ace at the club, Bazansky’s shot tied things up during the mid-rounds of the battle between the seniors and the juniors, and shifted the momentum back to the seniors after their opponents were pushing hard to win the title from the older group, who had won six of the past seven titles before this year’s installment.

The 17th hole, a 190-yard, uphill par-3 has little visibility of the hole from the tee, so when a loud roar erupted near the green, neither Bazansky nor his group, two seniors and four juniors, immediately knew what all the ruckus was about.

The ball had apparently landed on the green, rolled at a high speed straight toward the pin and plunked square into the hole uninterrupted. Bazansky, the 2014 Vic Marion Senior’s Open champion said at the time that he initially thought it was close, but onlookers saw his shocked face when he realized his feat.
