Palos Heights’ Murphy a hole-in-one machine
When it comes to holes-in-one Bob Murphy has done what LeBron James once promised to do for Miami Heat fans.
Not one, not two, not three ...
The Palos Heights resident did something highly unusual when he registered two aces within six days while playing rounds at two different courses in June. But that was only part of the 23-year-old’s stunning links tale.
When that happened, Murphy already had a pair of holes-in-one to his credit. But if you think he has taken that machine-like efficiency for granted, think again.
“I didn’t realize what was going on because it was hard for me to comprehend how it was possible to get two hole[s]-in-one in six days,” said Murphy, a course assistant at Bolingbrook Golf Club, the site of his most recent ace.
“I was just numbed by the feats I had accomplished.”
