PT's Nettles with a hole-in-one

Happy Fourth of July, y'all. Slow night here at the office, though not when it comes to chips, veggie trays or cookie cakes. Those things have very much been in play.

Been cranking out Athlete of the Year copy, so look for that in Sunday's edition.

In the meantime, this is interesting. Just caught a hole-in-one fax on the printer. The subject? Tom Nettles, Peters Township Class of 2013, incoming freshman at NCAA Division I Campbell University.

Apparently Nettles aced the 197-yard par-3 14th hole at Rolling Hills Country Club today, using a 5-iron to do so. His playing partners were Sean Byers, Jim Gordon and Bernie Matlak.

Not a bad way to start the holiday.

Nettles finished second each of the past two years at the PIAA Class AAA individual championships, firing a 74-70-144 last fall at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York.
