Because I didn’t feel bad enough about my golf game already
CLEARWATER, Fla. — A hole-in-one is rare on the golf course, but what are the odds of a blind golfer sinking one?
Leo Fiyalko couldn’t see it, but his golf buddies did — a hole-in-one on the fifth hole at the Cove Cay Country Club.
Leo Fiyalko brushed off the feat, and had to be prodded to tell his wife about it at the end of the round.
Fiyalko is 92 and has macular degeneration. He’s been golfing for 60 years, but his 110-yard shot with a 5-iron on Jan. 10 was his first hole-in-one.
Blind. 92 years old. You’re kidding, right?
Pardon me. I have to go throw my clubs in a lake.
