Sunday is going to be a day that eight-year-old Easton Swallow remembers for many years.easton swallow
While golfing with father Ryan Swallow at the Broken Arrow Golf and Athletic Club he got his first ever hole in one.
The Henryetta elementary student was using a 6 iron on the 103 yard eighth hole when he got his ace.
Disbelieving the accomplishment, he turned to his teary-eyed excited dad and yelled, “Really, are you serious.”
Easton has been working toward that goal for most of his life. “He was swinging clubs and playing around with me since he was 14 months old,” the elder Swallow said. The love of the game has resulted in Easton engaging in competitive golf for the past five years.
That hole in one gave the youthful Knight a 39 round and first place in the eight and under Tulsa Local Tour Event.
His father is head softball coach at Henryetta high school and a serious golfer in his own right. Swallow competes in a number of local events and has already posted his own ace. He made that some years ago when he was 26 at the Paige Belcher Stone Creek Course.
“Easton loves sports and he has really taken to golf,” his dad said Sunday after the tournament. “When he is not golfing, he likes to play basketball.”
For now, the yellow Titilest ProV1 golf ball and the scorecard with a triangle on hole number 8 will be placed prominently in the Swallow home as a reminder of that hot, humid August day.
