Three area 14th holes yield aces in past week

Rick Floyd sank his fourth hole-in-one last Thursday at Brainerd, while playing with Ronnie Tucker, Charlie Hill and Ray Best. The ace was a 125-yarder on No. 14, and he used a 9-iron.

Bobby Lee made his third hole-in-0ne Sunday on No. 14 at Brown Acres. He used a wedge for the 94-yard shot, and Keith Lee, Bill Howard and Yank Patel were witnesses.

The 14th was the ace hole this week, apparently. Monday on Signal Mountain's 14th, Michael Hall had a hole-in-one during the Chattanooga Chapter Tennessee PGA pro-am.
