Nalani played her very first 36-hole golf tournament, the San Diego Junior Amateur held at Sycuan Resort. She hasn't had much experience walking 18-holes, let alone doing it 2 days straight. She did however struggle on some of the holes but did something that none of the other juniors could boast on this tournament. She made a Hole in One!
We didn't realize that the ball even rolled onto the green as number 4 on Pine Glen was shaded by a large tree. We originally thought another player's ball was hers, but as we approached the green, we noticed that it wasn't yellow as Nalani plays the Yellow Titleist NXT Tour balls.
After walking around for a couple of minutes, one of the parents looked into the hole and we found it! Pretty impressive for a young girl who just recently turned 8 and used her driver of all clubs to reach this green.
