On Sunday, June 26, 12-year-old Gracie Cronovich of East Alton performed a pretty satisfying feat. For the first time in the young golfer's career she sank a hole-in-one.
The special accomplishment happened on Hole No. 5 at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course inside Gordon Moore Park in Alton. Cronovich used a pitching wedge from the red tees, 103 yards out on the par 3 hole.
Sara Gwillim of Bethalto witnessed the shot.
Cronovich also plays on the PGA Junior Tour (9 holes) and US Kids golf (18 holes).
