Most of us spend our Golden Tee lives hoping that we’ll one day stumble upon a hole-in-one of more than 400 yards. It takes the right setup—certainly the right wind—and the perfect situation to create this ultimate ace, but it can be done.
And for some of us, it can be done twice…in one week. Yes, you read that right.
Minnesota's Marc “The Mouth” Muklewicz” has a very distinct playing style. And really, that’s putting it lightly.
Outside of seemingly always being in motion, limbs flying in every which direction, The Mouth isn’t afraid of any setup. He’ll try shots we wouldn’t see in our wildest Golden Tee dreams—you dream about Golden Tee, don’t lie—and sometimes these shots work wonderfully.
Sometimes, they do not.
When they do, however, The Mouth can send the ball traveling great distances. This was something that was certainly on display this past week when he nailed two aces from beyond 415 yards.
First, he tackled the opening hole at Coconut Beach. 419 yards, and his ball was just starting to get going when it knocked into the pin with force.
Next came the first of Bear Lodge, a hole that has only been aced a handful of times (at the most) before. Well, until Marc knocked it in from 415 yards. And again, his ball was just getting going once it hit the green.
What did we learn today? For one, these two holes can be reached with the right setup. And two, The Mouth isn't terrible at this whole Golden Tee thing.
