6-year-old scores hole-in-one
BAKER - A six-year-old has become a legend on a golf course.
Dylan Bell hit a hole-in-one on a 52 yard par 3 on October 22 and is one of the youngest to make the accomplishment.
"It rolled in," said Bell. "It was a surprise."
Bell is part of The First Tee golf program at J.S. Clark Park in Baker. He was on the first hole with his coach, Morgan Miley, and volunteer coach, Tryson Elston.
"He hit the ball and I knew it was a good shot because it hit the green," Miley said. "I looked down to tell him 'good shot' and whenever I looked up it hit the slope and rolled in."
Bell, who has only been playing golf for eight weeks, used his four iron when he hit the shot many golfers dream of.
"We were jumping up and down excited," said Miley. "They could hear us all the way on the other side of the course."
Every week, Bell has been practicing, working hard at his new game and learning life skills taught by The First Tee Program. The program makes a bridge between golf, home and school and teaches children about meeting people and making goals.
Bell isn't sure if he'll be able to make a hole-in-one again but dreams of playing with golf with Tiger Woods.
"It's going to be pretty hard to get another one," he said.
