“It was my first hole-in-one ever,” Saca said. “I was shocked at first and did not know it went in.”
Saca hit a wedge on the 17th hole island green surrounded by water, hitting the pin on the fly and the ball disappeared in the hole. It was her first career hole, a golfing achievement many never accomplish in a lifetime on the links.
“I was in between clubs and I did not know what to use,” said Saca. “I decided to just go for it. I hit it and saw it going towards the hole but you never think it is going to actually hit. We hear this load noise like it had hit the pin and we didn’t see where it went. I kinda saw it drop and I looked over at the other player’s faces and they were in shock. It was exciting.”
Saca’s round of 75 was good for third place in the 31-player Delta League field.
