69-year-old hits 2 hole-in-ones at golf course
NAPLES, Fla. (NBC) -- A 69-year-old Naples woman made two hole-in-ones within 13 days at Cedar Hammock Golf Club.
Roz Kallet loves playing golf in the winter for many reasons.
Less than a year after moving from snowy central New York to Naples, she pulled out her trusty four-hybrid and attacked the par three island green at Cedar Hammock Golf Club.
"We watched the shot and it's one of those where the green is elevated- so the ball hit the green- bounced twice and rolled in the hole," Kallet said.
A hole in one for a 69-year-old grandmother! That's not something that happens every day.
But that's only half the story. Less than two weeks later, Roz put her tee in the ground on the fourth hole at Cedar Hammock, and got another hole in one on the same hole.
"I wacked away, and all of the sudden, one lady with us said, "oh my God- it's going in the hole!" I say- "oooh! Not again!" Kallet said.
Two hole in ones, on the same hole, within 13 days!
If that's not enough, Roz already had three career hole-in-ones before those two.
But her biggest thrill of all was sharing the news with her five grandkids.
"They're like, "grandma! we can't believe you did this!" And I said, it was just for you! So each one thinks they have their own hole in one now. There are five with five grandchildren. So there's one for each," Kallet said.
On top of that, Roz's fifth hole in one matched her husband, Jim's, career total.
Good luck beating that, grandkids.
"They have a goal to set. They've got to get going. Because there's five more they're going to need to make and I'm not so sure it can be done," said Roz's husband, Jim.
But if Roz keeps playing her lucky hole, those grandkids may need to make more than five to catch her.
