Eighty-eight-year-old golfer Efi Been shot a hole-in-one on Sunday morning at the Ga’ash Golf Club. The longtime duffer hit his ace on the 155-meter 9th hole at Ga’ash during his regular weekly four-ball round. Witnessing the exceptional feat were Kalley Saacks, Ivor Wainstein and Morris Strauss. A one-time three-handicap, Been is one of Israel’s best senior golfers and this hole-in-one was, almost unbelievably, the seventh of his career.
