Hole in one recorded at Hilltop

| October 17, 2014

COSHOCTON – Bill Bible has been playing golf for about 50 years and on Sept. 22 he recorded his first ever hole in one. The memorable moment occurred on hole number eight at Hilltop Golf Course.

“I was pretty excited,” he said. “I didn’t see it go in, but the fellows I was playing with thought it did, but weren’t sure. It hit the green and bounced and the second time it hit the ground it must have went in the hole.”

Bible believes the key to his success was using the right club.

“I used an 8 Iron and at about 150 yards that was the right club for the shot,” he said.

Larry Fry, Barry Shaffer and Kenny Perry shared the moment with Bible.

“We had an old timers league up there on Mondays and this was our year end scramble,” Bible said. “We played 18 holes that day. I was happy to get the hole in one, but the rest of the round we didn’t play very well.”
