Daniel Zurawski stood at the 16th  tee on the Lakes Course at Lake Arrowhead with a strong wind at his back. Competing at the NCCGA North Regional No. 2 for Marquette Club Golf, he was simply looking to contribute to the team’s score.

About 140 yards from the hole, the sophomore reached back with his Titleist Vokey wedge and drove the ball toward the cup.

“I hit it, and I thought I hit it pretty well,” Zurawski said. “It was turning right towards the stick, and I saw it bounce. It slowly trickled, trickled, and the ball just disappeared. I dropped the club and was high-fiving everybody.”

A hole in one. Zurawski was as surprised as anyone about the ace.

“I wasn’t playing my best golf up to that point,” Zurawski said. “It’s not something that’s going through your head when you hit the shot.”

It was the first hole in one of his life, and it came on a course he had never played before.

“None of the guys had ever seen one before,” Zurawski said. “So everyone was just super excited and really supportive.”

Zurawski’s unforgettable day got better when the team clinched first place at the regional tournament, which qualified them for the NCCGA Fall National Championship at TPC San Antonio in November.
