Roosevelt freshman gets a hole-in-one

Michael Bloedel, a freshman golfer at Roosevelt, accomplished the Holy Grail of golf – at least to most amateur players – in a match against Newport on Thursday: He made a hole-in-one.

Bloedel’s hole-in-one came at Newcastle Golf Course on the 130-yard seventh hole.

“I’ve been coaching since 87, and this is the first hole-in-one that a player on my team has ever had,” Roosevelt coach Darrel Montzingo said. “That’s what, 26 years? I think it’s pretty remarkable.”

Bloedel’s future also looks bright with Roosevelt: He has the second-best average on the team.

“He just needs time to mature,” Montzingo said. “Hopefully he’ll get continue to get better.”
