The first ace of the season has been recorded at the Country View Golf Club and Michael Newell, to no surprise, performed the honors. And Newell knows a thing or two about holes-in-one.

On Tuesday, May 22, playing the course in his town of residence, Newell recorded his fourth career ace.

On this day, he aced the 145-yard, par-3 ninth hole at Country View. He used a 9-iron for his tee shot, which was witnessed by Gary Snowden and John Cushman.
