12 year old Landon Powell, a Milton resident and rising 7th grader at Hopewell Middle School, achieved a Hole in One on June 20th at Crooked Creek Golf Club. He achieved the feat on the Par 3 124 yard 6th hole using a 7 iron.
Landon, a travel baseball player for many years, played this summer in the PGA Junior League at Crooked Creek and was recently named to the All Star team which will be competing against other club teams for a shot to advance to state and nationals.
What made the event even more special is that his playing partner was his Mom, Kristen Powell. Landon has been playing golf recreationally with his Dad, brothers and friends since age 4, but this was his first time playing with his Mom as his partner. His new good luck charm was capitalizing on an opportunity to spend some one on one time with her boy.
