At the ninth hole, Eng stepped up to take his swing, gripping the 7-iron his late son Bill had made and given him as a Father’s Day gift several years before. As he watched the ball soar high in the air, then drop behind a hill to the green beyond, he heard shouts from his group that he’d made a good shot. Reaching the green he saw it was indeed more than a good shot, it was a great shot, a hole-in-one. “It was a special Father’s Day gift,” remarked Eng. “Thanks, Bill, love you, Dad.” “It was a special Father’s Day gift,” remarked Eng of his hole-in-one shot made with the 7-iron his late son, Bill, made and gave to him on Father’s Day several years ago. - Photo by Priscilla Bauer • Harold Peterson • Dianne Chapman • Shirley Ann Elstad-Calhoun • Howard (Pork) Vezina • Deborah Lucey Martin • Delmo W.
