Rub of the Green: Quest is not easy, but Valley product Chad Collins should go for PGA’s pot of gold

(Continued)

TERRE HAUTE —

When asked what he shot, the reply was “I’ll be playing Hulman Links for the fourth time tomorrow.”



Aces have been plentiful at River Bend at The Landing. That’s the former Elks Fort Harrison Country Club. Don Albert reports that it has taken 60 years to record his first hole in one. He recently grabbed his trusty Ping wedge and performed his perfect shot on No. 8. Looking on were Ron Poore Sr. and Harvey Cabak.

Also draining their tee shots on the 95-yard par three were Shawn Sheffield and Will Pollock. Sheffield used his sand wedge for his ace, which was witnessed by Tim Snedeger and Bob Woods. Will Pollock, a member of North’s golf team, popped his 56-degree wedge into the cup and became one of the younger set to make an ace this season. His brother, Sam, witnessed the feat.



• Tip of the week — If you are “topping” your drives, place a tee about two inches past the ball you want to hit, and then try to make contact with the tee in front as you make your swing.

Also, have someone hold your head steady while you take a practice swing. Stand far enough from the path of the clubhead so you don’t get hit. Your head won’t remain perfectly still, but excess motion will ruin your shots.

Keep your head down and your shoestrings tied. We’ll be back.
