BLOOMINGTON (Illinois) — Reagan Kennedy became the youngest golfer to make a hole-in-one at the Links golf course here, and like a seasoned professional she didn’t make a peep.

Link course manager Jeff Hunt said Regan (6) became the youngest golfer to record an ace with an 85-yard shot using a 4-hybrid on July 6,

According to the Bloomington Pantagraph, there was a reason why Regan didn’t shout after she holed the 85-yard shot.

She said her mother, Erin, and father, Steve, told her over an over that it is not good practice to make noise on the golf course.

Her sister Cheyenne Broquard (13), told the paper, “We told her this is one time you can scream.

“It didn’t hit her until the seventh hole and she said, ‘I’m going to get another one’. We said ‘OK, hotshot’.”
