Believe it or Not

Golfer hits hole-in-one on her first hole of her first game
Okay, ready for your you-gotta-be-kidding-me story of the week, if not the year?
Your setting: lovely St. Petersburg, Florida. Your heroine: 62-year-old Norweigan native Unni Haskell, who, after two months' worth of golf lessons, teed up her first-ever shot on a real live golf course.
On the first tee of the nine-hole par-3 Cypress Links in St. Pete, Ms. Haskell pulled out a driver -- this is a hundred-yard hole, but remember, Ms. Haskell had never played before -- and drilled a 75-yard corker that bumped, ran and ended up right in the hole.
That's right ... on the first swing of the first hole of the first course she ever played, Unni Haskell hit a hole-in-one.
"I didn't know it was that big of a deal, I thought all golfers do this.''

If I were a golfer right now, I'd probably put my clubs away or on ebay and take up stamp collecting.
