Mackay gets first ace

Scott Mackay of Sequim recorded his first hole-in-one Tuesday, July 12, at SkyRidge Golf Course. He used a 5-iron from 172 yards on hole No. 8. His ace came during a SkyRidge cup match with Allen Patton.
In somewhat of an oddity, the hole-in-one was only good enough to push the hole, as Patton, receiving a stroke, birdied the hole.
Patton, Jeff Pedersen and Mark Willis of Sequim witnessed the shot.
