John O\\\'Connor had a hole-in-one May 16, 2018 on hole 17 at Poplar Creek in San Mateo, CA.
He used a 9 Iron on the 115 yard par 3 hole.
Witnesses to his great achievement were Don Papa , Buzz Rechsteiner and Dennis Holl.
My friend Don, who's a single handicap, had just hit an eagle on Par 5 hole # 16. So we head to #17 and I'm the last to hit. Two balls on the green, one in the sand. So I hit a great arc on this up-hill Par 3 with a nine-iron, looking like it's right at the flag. But it's an uphill shot with a false front so none of us could see the shot. As we approach, there's only two balls on the green (with Dennis' shot in the sand). We look in the cup, and there's my Titleist 2! The best part: my Ace overshadowed Don's Eagle! .
