Blind 92-year-old sinks hole-in-one
He's not entirely blind, but still. I can barely connect with a ball at a driving range.
CLEARWATER, Fla. - A hole-in-one is rare on the golf course, but what are the odds of a blind golfer sinking one?
Leo Fiyalko couldn't see it, but his golf buddies did - a hole-in-one on the fifth hole at the Cove Cay Country Club. Fiyalko is 92 and has macular degeneration.
He's been golfing for 60 years, but his 110-yard shot with a five iron on Jan. 10 was his first hole-in-one.
Fiyalko tees off every Thursday with a group of golfers ranging in age from 70 to 90-plus. He used to have a seven handicap, but now he needs help lining up his shots and finding his golf balls because he only has peripheral vision in his right eye.
