Liz Langley scores hole-in-one at Steamboat Golf Club
Steamboat Springs — Liz Langley recorded her first hole-in-one Tuesday on a 91-yard pitching wedge flop shot on Steamboat Golf Club’s third hole.
Of course, every golfer has had the shot that looks good only to approach the green with a ball almost taunting you as it becomes more and more visible with each step. That’s why it was understandable when Langley was hesitant to believe in her feat from the tee box.
“The girls I was playing with said it was in, but I wasn’t so sure,” she said.
Upon closer examination, the ball in fact was in the cup, and the screams that proceeded were heard around the golf course. Although her partners were excited, Langley was more in shock than anything.
“I think the whole rest of the round, it was just sinking in that I got a hole-in-one,” said Langley. “I didn’t really get all that excited until the next day.”
Of course, there is the one burden of scoring an ace that everyone has to deal with, and that’s the monstrous bill of buying drinks for everyone in the clubhouse. Somehow, Langley got out of it by timing her round’s final hole to when no one else was in the clubhouse.
Some girls have all the luck.
