In what can only be described as a rare three-peat, three different members made holes-in-one during La Paloma Country Club’s 60-person Men’s/Women’s Golf Association Tournament Saturday.

Bruce Gibbins made a hole-in-one from 128 yards out on Hill No. 8 using a 9-iron. Chris Coxall made his ace with a 30-degree hybrid from 163 yards out on Ridge No. 7. And Tim Fazio made his double eagle on Hill No. 8 from the same distance as Mr. Gibbins, this time with a pitching wedge.

Three in one day… in the same tournament round when there were only 240 possible chances? When was the last time that happened? Congratulations gentlemen!
