Probably not, but even Tiger Woods would be impressed by Burnsville native Ross Kvittem’s double eagle last Tuesday.
Ross Kvittem, 55, dropped his second shot into the hole Tuesday on the par-5 No. 3 on the Blue Nine at Rich Valley Golf Club, said course co-owner Rosie Rahn.
The 463-yard No. 3, with two bunkers along the fairway and sand traps flanking each side of the green, is rated as the Blue Nine’s second-most difficult hole.
Kvittem, playing with one other golfer, said he hit a driver off the tee to within about 175 yards of the hole. With a clean lie in the rough, he hit a 6-iron.
“The ball hit 10 feet short [of the cup], rolled up and disappeared,” he said. “I told my wife when I got home. She didn’t know what the big deal was. It wasn’t a hole-in-one.”
Kvittem, who’s been playing golf for nearly 30 years and has a hole-in-one to his credit, finished the nine holes in two-under-par 33.
