Palos Heights man sinks pair of aces
Most golfers will never experience the thrill of making a hole-in-one.
Bob Murphy became part of that group on June 11. Then he accomplished something far more rare: a repeat performance.
Six days after notching an ace at Zigfield Troy Golf Course in Woodridge, the 23-year-old Palos Heights man sank another hole-in-one, this time at Bolingbrook Golf Course. Amazingly, those weren't Murphy's first two aces, but the third and fourth he has recorded since he began golfing.
These latest ones came on holes measuring 109 yards (No. 7 at Zigfield Troy) and 152 yards (No. 17 at Bolingbrook).
Murphy, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a degree in golf enterprise management, has begun a career in his field by serving as the Bolingbrook course's assistant golf pro.
