Miller gets his second
Many very good golfers go their entire lives without making a hole in one. It's something that requires great skill and sometimes just a little bit of good fortune. Very few golfers even get to witness a hole in one. And only the very best players can say they've aced more than one hole in their career.
Cole Miller, a 14-year old who will be a Northwestern Lehigh High School freshman in fall, made his first hole in one last summer playing a Golf Association of the Lehigh Valley event at Willowbrook Golf Course in Catasauqua.
This month he repeated the difficult feat. He did it while playing a Sunday round with his father, Carl Miller, at their home course, Blue Ridge Country Club in Palmerton.
Cole hit a 7-iron to the 150-yard, 16th hole. It took one hop and bounced into the cup.
"I feel pretty lucky that I have two," Cole said. "My dad's never got one and he's been playing a lot longer than me."
Miller plans to join the golf team at Northwestern this fall. He's been competing in GALV events for a few years and plans to move up to American Junior Golf Association and International Junior Golf Association events this year.
