Who is the youngest golfer to ever hit a hole in one?
That honor belongs to diminutive differ Jake Paine who established the record in 2001 at the tender age of 3 years, five months and 15 days old. Jake’s “Shot heard ‘round the world” occurred on a 66 yard uphill hole at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Course and was witnessed by his father, his seven-year-old brother and the course starter. For the record, Jake was using his favorite Snoopy driver.
