    This story might finish right here and nonetheless be price telling. However, remarkably, there’s one other twist: within the group was the identical member who had hosted Clark, which means that member had witnessed two aces in 10 days on arguably essentially the most well-known par-3 in golf.  

    “Ruben, what do it’s a must to say about that?” the member was requested by the video shooter when he arrived on the inexperienced.

    “Extremely unlikely,” Ruben stated.

    A couple of moments later, Ruben was requested, “So that you’ve seen two holes-in-one in 10 days on this gap?”

    “Right.”

    “Had you ever seen a hole-in-one on this gap?”

    “I’d by no means seen one interval,” Ruben stated, cracking up his group.

    Cypress Level is ranked No. 2 in GOLF’s newest rating of the Prime 100 Programs within the U.S. In GOLF structure editor Ran Morrissett’s description of the course, he known as 16 “the sport’s most dramatic and photographed gap.”
