When he hit his first-ever hole-in-one at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley on Wednesday, Michael Thompson was naturally thrilled. When he aced a hole at Massanutten Resort in Stonewall, Va., within a 24-hour span, he was almost speechless.
"It was 19 hours," the 40-year-old IT consultant from Towson said. "A lot of guys wait 19 years for a hole-in-one. It's just wacky."
Thompson used a Titleist Vokey 54-degree wedge from 117 yards on Hole No. 11 at Hayfields at about 7:30 p.m. while competing in the club's weekly twilight men's league. The next day, he pulled out a Vokey 58-degree wedge from 105 yards on Hole No. 15 on Massanutten's Woodstone Meadows course at about 2:30 p.m.
