Wheeling, West Virginia – Over the weekend, four year old West Virginia native Rocco nailed a hole-in-one on a Par 3 at Olgeby Resort Golf in Wheeling. Rocco’s dad, Mario Figaretti, recorded the shot and couldn’t believe what he saw as his toddler son drained his first hole-in-one.
Rocco’s incredible shot has gone viral on the internet and even ended up as a story on TMZ. According to TMZ, “This type of course is super kid-friendly…each hole is basically designed to be a 3-hit deal. One to get it on the green and a couple puts afterward.”
After Rocco hit the shot, he ran down over the hill and confirmed that he did in fact make a hole-in-one by pulling it out of the hole and holding it up for the camera to see.
His father Mario said of his son’s shot, “He practices all the time in the yard. To say I’m proud would be an understatement!”
Way to go, Rocco!
