Golf Performance Center Student Makes Second Hole-in-One!

A golf student from Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center recently made his second hole-in-one during Andrews High School team practice.

Two solid golf shots were hit by players on the 3rd hole at Cherry Hill Country Club in Andrews, SC but it was 14-year-old Robert Higbe IV who found his ball at the bottom of the cup.

“I couldn’t find my ball, I hit it good and over the tree-line, but I didn’t see it anywhere,” Higbe said. “When Christian walked up to the hole, my ball was in the hole.”

The 9th grader has also been an active member of the First Tee Program; Andrews High School Coach Poston expects great things from the young Higbe.

Dale Ketola, Golf Performance Center’s Director of Instruction and Clubfitting said about his student,

“Robert is a great young player with tons of power for his size. Currently, we are working on attacking the ball from a more shallow angle and more from the inside.”

From the results of his lessons with Ketola, it looks as if Higbe has been paying attention in class!
