Golfer, 91, aces hole at Verde Santa Fe
A 91-year-old Clarkdale man who plays golf about once a week hit a hole-in-one at Verde Santa Fe on Friday morning.
Kenny Watson, a resident of Black Hills Estates, aced the par-three fourth hole, which covers about 150 yards. The feat, Watson’s second career hole-in-one, was witnessed by Duane Kirby, Dr. George Bordenave and Gordon Schumann.
"He dropped a $100 in the pot at the coffee shop and said the drinks were on him," said Bill Oldfather, who witnessed Watson’s first ace 15 years ago and quickly heard about his second one.
Watson and his partners usually play nine holes every Friday. The youngest of the foursome is 79.
"They play here almost every week," said VSF club pro Mike Bishop.
