A Six-Year-Old Girl Hits a Hole-In-One and Doesn’t Celebrate . . . Because Her Dad Told Her to Always Stay Calm on a Golf Course

Hole in one

Hole in one

There are two fantastic things about this story.  One, a six-year-old girl does something in golf that most of us will never do.  And two, the way she handles herself after she did it is just PERFECT.

Last week, six-year-old Reagan Kennedy of Bloomington, Illinois was golfing at a course called The Links at Ireland Grove with her family.  And when she stepped up to the 85-yard third hole, she hit a HOLE-IN-ONE.

She didn’t scream. She didn’t celebrate. All she did was calmly walk back to the cart.

Why? Reagan says that she’s been playing golf since she was two, and back then her dad told her to always stay calm, cool, and relaxed on a golf course. So she did. After her hole-in-one she stayed calm because she respects the game.

Her 13-year-old sister Cheyenne told her that when you get a hole-in-one, though, it actually IS alright to celebrate a little.

Here’s a photo of Reagan and her family on the golf course.
