Parkland High golfer’s hole-in-one story goes viral, resulting in an ESPN appearance

For Ben Tetzlaff, the Parkland High senior who made two holes-in-one during a round of golf, life has been pretty incredible since Monday.

“I didn’t expect it to make national news,” Tetzlaff said. “It’s been crazy around here.”

Tetzlaff, 17, made two aces within a five-hole stretch during a high-school practice round at Iron Lakes Country Club in North Whitehall Township. Once the story of his rare accomplishment went viral, Tetzlaff became a golf celebrity.

The Associated Press picked up the story, as did Golf.com, Golf Channel and PGA.com. Tetzlaff appeared on two local TV stations and was interviewed by CBS Radio.
