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.
