LEVELLAND, Texas - Levelland native Blake Myers sunk a
hole-in-one on the first day of the Dennis Patton Texan Club Scholarship
Scramble held April 30 at the Levelland Country Club. The par 3 sixth hole was set at 158 yards.
The hole-in-one opportunity was sponsored Smith South Plains
of Levelland, who awarded Myers with a two-year lease on a 2011 Ford Escape for
sinking the shot.
Myers recently finished a degree in petroleum engineering at
Texas Tech University and will be moving to Houston to begin his career. He said that although the shot did not feel
any different from any other, members of his group began talking about it
possibly going in soon after he hit it.
Witnesses of the shot include Jacob Kirkland, Clay
Hutchinson, and Matt Munoz.
