Plaque marks Jones’ first hole-in-one


East Lake Golf Club is the home of Bobby Jones and the Atlanta course recently noted the location of the legendary golfer’s first hole-in-one.

Jones aced the No. 11 hole (now No. 2 for the Tour Championship) in 1927 at the age of 25. A plaque, set on a large rock, marks the tee box and notes that Jones required a hickory shafted 4-iron from 173 yards for the one.

The plaque also denotes Jones’ second hole-in-one, which came at Augusta National five years later.
