FTSG for the 2nd Weekend in August
Hole in One x 2 
Many of you know the vast majority of course results are reported through our website and then automatically forwarded to the Dayton Daily News. 

These submissions generally include Hole In Ones.  Most of the submissions are scanned by our staff and when we see two from the same course on the same hole in back to back days, generally we think there is a clerical error.  

This time, that was not the case when Gary Sult, aced #2 on the South Course at NCR on Wednesday and Thursday of this past week.  Truly a feat worthy of being the lead article in the Short Grass.  Staff at NCR researched the odds at 5.7 Million to 1.

Congratulations Gary!
