"6:00pm on the longest day of the year on a smoggy first day of summer in L.A. All we could really see was the top of the flag blowing from the Valley wind. As soon as I hit it, my dad said, “Oh, that’s a fantastic shot!”...but we couldn’t see it land because of the long shadows and distance. I was reaching to pickup my tee and I heard the ball hit the flagstick. Didn’t know it was an Ace till I looked in the hole!"
