There must be something about the number eight when playing golf.

Michael Smith and Bill Firmin each had holes-in-one, with each using an eight iron for their club of choice. Smith, who was playing at the Glenwood Springs Golf Course in West Glenwood pulled an eight iron from his bag and with one swing recorded his ace at hole No. 3. Witnessing the shot were Jim Frey, Jim Roy and Bill Hauskins. Peter Rockwood and Norm Houten watched as Bill Firmin grabbed the eight iron from his bag to tee off on the ninth hole at Rifle Creek Golf Course. With one swift stroke, Firmin aced the hole and earned bragging rights for the day’s round.
