First time was a charm for one Kincardine man who sunk a hole in one at Somerhill Golf Course on Saturday after never having played the sport before.

 

Bob St. Jean joined his co-workers from Lakeside Chevrolet Buick GMC for the third annual company golf tournament. While many of his colleagues are avid golfers, the 32-year-old had never held a club before, let alone played a round.

 

“I had to tell him which hand he was,” joked parts manager Ben Jones.
