Michigan Golfer Hits 397 Yard Hole In One


A golfer in Grand Rapids has hit a 397 yard hole in one:

ROCKFORD—Ben “Crusher” Kruizenga didn’t react. Instead, he stood frozen at the blue tees on the seventh hole at North Kent Golf Course.

Kruizenga had just hammered a 397-yard tee shot—that’s 95 yards longer than Tiger Woods’ average—into the bottom of the cup for a hole in one.

But he had a problem. He didn’t think anyone saw it.

“The pin was way up front,” said Kruizenga of his May 21 feat. “I was playing by myself, and I didn’t see anyone.”

Luckily for Kruizenga, Kathleen Klein—North Kent’s owner—and one of her rangers sat in a golf cart just beyond the green. Klein saw the ball roll in but thought nothing of it until Kruizenga asked if she had seen his ball.

  1. Ok, my question is—did he see it go in the hole from the tee box?  I know my eyesight is lacking, but I have trouble seeing my ball at 250+ yards.  I sure wouldn’t be able to see my ball roll into the cup at 400.
