Patrick Tackaberry, a member of the greens crew at Bandon Crossings, had his first career hole-in-one at the course on Wednesday.
Tackaberry used a hybrid to ace the 172-yard 11th hole. Tackaberry, who lives in Bandon and is 54, has been golfing about five years.
He was playing with three other members of the greens crew after they finished their course maintenance work for the day. The others were Tim Lee, Armin Miller and Stidney Durette.
Miller had changed the hole location on the green Wednesday morning.
Phil Shoaf extended his lead in the race for the Crossings Cup by shooting a 4-under par 68 during last week’s Casual Fridays event at Bandon Crossings.
Through eight weeks, Shoaf has amassed 62 points, which gives him a 13-point lead on Dewey Powers and 18-point lead on Rich Stefiuk in the season-long points race. The top eight will be in a match-play tournament at the end of the season to determine the Crossings Cup winner.
John Johnston had the best net score last Friday with a 68.
Stefiuk and Johnston were the winners of the Wacky Wednesday game this week.
Stefiuk took low-gross honors and Johnston won for low net on a day when the game was You Pick Em.
