SHEFFIELD – Tim Shreckengost of Sheffield defied the odds by hitting a hole-in one on Ridge Stone Golf Course hole No. 6 for the second time in his career, the latest coming on Sunday, May 3.

The odds of hitting one hole-in-one is 12,500 to 1. Hitting two on the same hole is 67 million to one. You are more than likely to win the lottery, but Shreckengost the first of the two.

His first hole-in-one on No. 6 came in a tournament previously. Ridge Stone was unsure of the date of Shreckengost’s first hole-in-one.

Ridge Stone, like many area golf courses, have been keeping a brisk business since the coronavirus pandemic. For a full story on that, see the May 14 print issues of the Sheffield Press and Pioneer Enterprise.
