95-year-old Joe Sasaki hits golf hole in one

Joe Sasaki, age 95, regularly played golf three days a week, until in 2012, he started cutting back to twice a week. Recently he said, “Ya know, I am getting tired. I think I am only gonna play one day a week.”

Sasaki can’t be that tired—he nailed a hole in one on Wednesday, July 24, at Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course in Fall City.

Sasaki used a three-wood on the Falls course’s 140-yard par-three tenth hole.
