5-year-old hits hole-in-one at local golf course

LEAWOOD, Kan. - A pint-sized golfer is getting lucky on the green.

Lynn Powell sunk a hole-in-one Sunday at Iron Horse Golf Course in Leawood from 57 yards out.

Did we mention she’s only 5?

“I mean, to hit a hole-in-one that’s one in a trillion. That’s pretty amazing. A lot of luck involved but she’s got some skill too,” Lynn’s father Jim Powell said.

Golf skills must run in the family because Lynn’s father is a local golf pro.

To make the accomplishment even more special, he bought Lynn a hole-in-one trophy.
