Michigan emergency room nurse has hole-in-one


An emergency room nurse who played golf after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reopened courses made a hole-in-one.

“I don’t know if I deserved to get this because of what I do. It’s mostly pure luck, but it was nice. Certainly something to enjoy with all that is going on,” Kelly Spitz told the Battle Creek Enquirer.

Spitz, who works at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, had the ace Tuesday at Cedar Creek Golf Club in Battle Creek. She has only played a few rounds of golf.

“I was just excited to hit a good shot,” Spitz said. “So when I saw it hit the green I was super excited. Then it kept rolling and rolling and then it disappeared.”

Golf was banned as nonessential during the coronavirus outbreak until Whitmer lifted the prohibition last week.

“I think in this time, we can all use a little good news,” Cris Vocke, the operator of Cedar Creek, said of the hole-in-one.
