Blind woman, 53, makes history with ace
Drummond believed to be first totally blind female to get hole-in-one
LOS ANGELES - Sheila Drummond, with her heart pounding, recorded what is believed to be the first hole-in-one by a totally blind female golfer at Mahoning Valley Country Club in Lehighton, Pa., on Sunday.
Playing with her husband, Keith, and another couple in damp conditions on a course she knows very well, the 53-year-old amateur aced the par-3 fourth from 144 yards with a driver.
Drummond, blind since 1982 because of diabetes, heard her ball strike the flagstick before it dropped into the cup for the best moment of her golfing career.
