|Golf - Hole in One
by Andis Kaulins, June 18, 1963
Kaulins -- Hole in One, June 18, 1963
This is the ball I
used for my 1st Ace. I was 16 then
and played this ball for maybe 10 rounds - you could still cut the ball
The witnesses in my foursome were Lowell Berg (now retired
former head of probably the leading architectural firm in Lincoln,
and past President of the Rotary Club), Roger Yant and Mike Ley
(who in 1972 was Nebraska Match Play Champion).
You could in those days send the ball in to Titleist (Acushnet)
and have them stamp your name and date on it, which I did.

together with the 1967 team, which also won the state title. My brother
Arv (Arveds) was on that 1967 team.

I have always been interested in sports and was pretty good at all of
but I had skipped the 1st grade in school,
so I was always a year younger and smaller than most of my classmates.
I grew a lot in my senior year in high school, too late for any varsity
sports except golf,
and that has remained my sport ever since.

|Andis Kaulins, Golf
Senior Champion at Stromberg and Team Player in the German Golf League
| After graduating from
Stanford Law School,
I won our law firm's internal golf championship in
and after moving to Europe, I also played briefly for the
team of a golf club in Germany,
but after their caddie house burned
down, and my golf clubs and accessory equipment with it,
I saw that as
a message from above to turn to other things in life
and did not play
golf for another ca. 30 years.
I resumed play in the 21st century and won a couple of tournaments,
winning the Stromberg Golf Club Senior Men's Championships in 2003 and
Golf Champions 2004
