Patience paid dividends for Tom Swearingen of Lake Oswego on April 21.
Swearingen has played golf for 59 years, but before April 21, he had never scored a hole in one.
Swearingen was golfing at Stone Creek Golf Club on April 21, when Lady Luck finally sided him. Using his pitching wedge, he put the ball in the cup from off the tee on the 115-yard second hole at Stone Creek.
Dave Brown of Wilsonville witnessed the shot.
