Robert Pruzin experienced one of the greatest thrills the game of golf has to offer Tuesday afternoon. With a pitching wedge in hand, the sophomore stepped up the tee box of hole No. 5 at Long Beach Country Club, swung, and watched as his drive found of the bottom of the cup.
The ace represented the second by a Marquette boys golfer in as many seasons. Teammate Michael Sakich achieved the rare feat last April 28th at Sandy Pines GC in DeMotte.
Pruzin parlayed the hole-in-one into a team-low 43. Marquette fell 178-187 to Michigan City.
Freshman Charlie O’Halloran finished one back of Pruzin’s pace with a 44. Sakich fired a 47 while sophomore Aidan Bartnicki carded a 53.
The Blazers (8-2) return to the course Thursday afternoon when they travel to Elkhart Christian. Tee-off is scheduled for 4:30 pm.
