Unique holes in one highlight area golf scene

On July 30, 12-year-old Brady Heytens was attending a youth golf clinic at Norwood Golf Course in Lake Nebagamon.
Brady stepped up to the tee box on hole No. 2 equipped with his driver and his “Sponge Bob” golf ball. Taking aim and using the techniques taught in the clinic, Brady struck the ball pure and scored his first lifetime hole-in-one.
The ace was witnessed by other youth golfers, Tyler Hood, Taylor and Carson Nykanen and Logan Hunter.
Coaching the clinic was Andy Heytens, Brady’s older brother, Spartan golf standout and current SHS girls golf coach.
Tim Heytens, Brady’s father commented that Brady’s two older brothers achieved their first aces at the age of 12.
Look for great things on the links from this young golfer.

Another ace was carded on July 4 at Poplar Golf Course. The par 4, 247-yard dogleg No. 7 is a tricky hole for even the accomplished golfer.
With towering pines guarding the right side of the fairway, bunkers guarding the front of the green and the Middle River guarding against long or left shots, Superior’s Mark Lozon stood on the tee box and blasted away.
Because the view of the green is obstructed by the pine trees that Lozon fired over, he and playing partner Mike Berry of Superior searched the area around the green and in the river for about five minutes.
The last ditch effort to locate the Max-Fli ball was to look into the cup. The ball rested there.
The story does not stop there … Lozon used a club to score his ace that he has had since his youth and claims it to be his favorite club. The Northwestern 5 wood he used is nearly 40 years old and made of wood with a brass sole plate.
There may be hope for the rest of us considering these two fantastic accomplishments.
