Dolfe has Midas touch at Haverhill CC

Haverhill native has recorded seven holes-in-one at Haverhill Country Club

Not all agree. His pal John Good calls him humble.

“There’s also some skill involved,” he confirms. “You don’t ace seven holes without some knowledge of the game. He tries not to be superstitious about the whole thing.”

Hole in one facts

Two of Fran Dolfe Jr.’s cohorts have six aces each — Pat McGonagle and Dom Pallaria.

Odds of hitting one, according to the PGA, are roughly 40,000 to 1.

It’s a golfer’s ultimate dream and one of the hardest feats in sports, but not for Norman Manley of California. He’s done it 59 times.

The longest straight-shot ace ever recorded was by Robert Mitera of Nebraska an amazing 444 yards away.

Tiger Woods was 6 years old when he uncorked a hole-in-one.
