Gold Hill Middle School student sinks hole-in-one

Gold Hill Middle School eighth grader Stephen Fredenberg made a hole-in-one Aug. 24 at Regent Park Golf Club in Fort Mill, a course he had never played before.

Fredenberg, 13, was playing with his father and Jim and Fred Honeycutt, both of Fort Mill. He hit a 6-iron 147 yards on the 13th hole to make the shot.

After he made the shot, Fredenberg called his grandfather, Jerry McDonald of Hilton Head, who is an avid golfer but gave up the game three years ago because of declining health.

McDonald had also made a hole-in-one, but not until he was 68 years old.
