Former Marshfield football coach Kent Wigle had a hole-in-one on a windy day a couple of weeks back at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.
Wigle was playing Old Macdonald when he aced the eighth hole. He used a 4-hybrid on the 181-yard par-3 to earn his seventh career hole-in-one, but first in a number of years.
