Hastings Resident Sinks Hole-in-One
THOMPSONVILLE, MICH – On an otherwise quiet Monday in northern Michigan, Tim Larsen selected his 9-iron, looked at the pin. He was on the 7th hole of the Betsie Valley golf course at Crystal Mountain, and what happened next is something Tim’s been dreaming about for 30 years. But now, on this day, the 11th of June, 2012, something was about to happen.
He hit the ball – it felt good, it looked good… and it went in. From 127 yards out, Tim Larsen sunk a hole-in-one. It was his first. Justin Pratt was there to congratulate Tim – along with Scott and Matt Larsen. Now, the Vice President of Operations at FlexFab in Hastings will be introduced forever more as, “Tim Larsen. He got a hole-in-one at Crystal Mountain.”
