While out on a golf outing with her family on July 6th, little Reagan Kennedy rolled in a hole-in-one on the third hole at The Links at Ireland Grove golf course. It was an 85-yard shot she hit with a 4-hybrid, but perhaps more impressive than the actual shot was was her reaction after draining it. Bearing in mind the teachings from her father regarding appropriate golf course etiquette, Reagan modestly and quietly walked back to the cart with little more than a shrug of her little shoulders.

Via Pantagraph.com:

“We told her this is one time you can scream,” said sister Cheyenne Broquard, 13. “It didn’t hit her until the seventh hole and she said I’m going to get another one. We said ‘OK, hot shot.’”

“She’s really good,” said Cheyenne.

Cheyenne said they were deciding which club Reagan should use when they approached the tee on No. 3.

“We were like Reagan, you’ve got some muscles. Why don’t you try the 4-hybird?” said Cheyenne. “Dad lined her up, and she just swung at it. It was awesome, backswing and follow through. It bumped up right before the green, starting rolling and disappeared.”

Damn. That’s impressive. I have been golfing for 20+ years and I haven’t even come withing sniffing distance of an ace. It hardly seems fair.

Playing since she was two, Reagan had this to say about why she enjoys golfing so much, other than the fact that she’s already better than 90% of the hacks typically seen duffing it around the course on weekends:

“I get to do it with my dad.”

Awww, that’s too sweet. What an adorable little girl. Nevertheless, I’m still jealous of her impressive accomplishment. And I still might have to quit golfing after reading this story. To put it plainly, I stink. I ain’t no Reagan Kennedy. Further, if there happened to be another young golfing girl whose presidential-referencing name was not quite as dignified as Reagan Kennedy’s, say Carter Nixon, for example, she’d probably be way better than me, too.
