Hitting a hole in 1 just 85 yards away is so easy even a 6 year old can do it.
CBS news/Sports, 7/12./11. Move over Rory McIlroy, here comes Reagan Kennedy. Kennedy, a six-year-old girl from Illinois, sank a hole in one last week - and calmly walked back to her cart as if it were a normal day at the office. No incredulous scream. No fist-pumping. Just a ho-hum hole in one.
Could the ever-confident Kennedy be following in the footsteps of the 22-year-old McIlroy - another self-assured golf prodigy with poise beyond his years? The 22-year-old Northern Irishman and U.S. Open champ, like Kennedy, was nudged into golf by his father at a young age. And like Kennedy, McIlroy is famous for being a golf prodigy - he hit a ball 40 yards by age 2 and sank a hole in one at age nine. Age nine? Sounds like Kennedy is three years ahead. If we do the math, we can expect Kennedy to win the U.S. Open by age 19.
