Tim Price reports on the incredible feat of 76-year-old Bob Hullender, a four-time Texas state senior amateur champ, medalist in the U.S. Senior Amateur and runner-up at the 1994 U.S. Senior Amateur.
Here are the steps toward Hullender winning golf's big-shot lottery, just in case anyone might like to follow in those footsteps and see if Hell freezes over for them as well: On Friday, Jan. 3, he aced No. 16 at the La Loma Course at Fort
Sam Houston with a 7-iron from 158 yards; Monday, Jan. 6, he put down the second ace at Brackenridge Park on the 138-yard 10th with a 9-iron.
The day after the second ace, Tuesday, Jan. 7, he was playing in a group in front of Hullender at OlmosBasin Golf Course and had just finished his round on the par-5 18th that was playing close to 500 yards. Soon, word made it to the clubhouse that Hullender produced another remarkable shot. He'd double-eagled from 215 yards using a 3-iron loft hydrid.
