Brodie Perry, 13, made a hole-in-one on the 105-yard No. 3 hole at McCanless on Monday.

Perry used a pitching wedge. The ball lodged between the flag and the edge of the cup for a few moments until the flag shifted and the ball fell in the cup.

Perry was  practicing with his PGA Junior League team  for an upcoming match. He was playing with Cade Cranfield, Ethyn Haynes and Jackson Davis.  Also  witnessing the shot was Ethyn’s father, Chris Haynes.

Brodie is the son of Scott Perry, PGA professional at McCanless.
