James Wolklin did it once more. And then he unfold the wealth of his ace-ness to others.
Wolklin, 68, made his twelfth profession hole-in-one — two months after making three of them in five days — on Easter Sunday at Heritage Bay Golf & Country Club in Naples, Florida. He used an 8-iron on the 142-yard No. 6. His spouse, Cheryl, and Bob and Catherine Balser witnessed it.
“How crazy?” Wolkin mentioned Tuesday. “Just doing a couples golf, Easter Sunday, and luckily enough it comes another hole that I didn’t have yet — each one’s been on another hole.
“Good shot, right-to-left draw, but it bounced a little bit left of the pin. Then the undulation of the green brought it back right, and right into the hole. It was just another big roar. People can’t believe it.”
It’s his fourth at Heritage Bay, and as he mentioned, all 4 are on completely different holes. From Feb. 12-16, he aced No. 13 on the Cypress Course, No. 21 on the Oak Course, and No. 26 on the Oak Course on the 27-hole structure.
“Now everybody rubs my shoulders or rubs my clubs for luck,” Wolklin mentioned. “One guy rubbed my shoulder, and he makes a hole-in-one the next day.”
Last Monday, Wolklin visited Doreen Formale and he or she requested if he was the “ace guy.” He mentioned he was. The subsequent day, Formale made one on No. 6 at Heritage Bay.
Then final Wednesday, Wolklin was enjoying with Tim Johnson, and he gave him some phrases of encouragement on No. 8.
“I said ‘Let’s see you knock this in,’” Wolklin informed him.
Johnson promptly knocked it in the gap for an ace.
Wolklin mentioned 4 folks he’s encountered have gone on to make one.
