15-year-old on a hole-in-one roll

(AP) — Bradley Farmer is a bit of a puzzle. The 15-year-old makes a hole-in-one yet shows no more emotion than a smile.
The explanation? Been there, done that.
Six times in 41 days.
“It’s been pretty incredible,” said Farmer, a sophomore at Goodpasture Christian School in Madison, Tenn. “Most people play their entire life without making one.”
Farmer, all of 120 pounds, can’t explain his amazing aces. He was just trying to hit close to the hole for a shot at a birdie.
“It’s not like I was trying to make them, but the hole started looking bigger,” he said.
According to hole-in-one records kept by Golf Digest, the record for most aces in one year is 11, last set by Dr. Joseph Boydstone in 1962.
Farmer now has eight. He made his first one when he was 12 and got No. 2 a year later. He started playing competitive golf two years ago, practicing at The Hermitage Golf Course just outside Nashville and working on 50-yard chip shots in his back yard.
His handicap index is at 1.3 and he spent the summer playing in junior tournaments, with hopes of getting a Division I scholarship some day.
“He’s really improved,” Hermitage head pro Jeff Piciacchia said. “But six holes-in-one in 41 days is pretty remarkable. I wish I could teach myself how to do that.”
It didn’t take long for local golfers to take notice, especially when Farmer’s name kept popping up in the newspaper under the “Hole in One” section.
“Sometimes people ask me about it during the round,” he said. “Sometimes they don’t know about it. I try not to bring it up.”
Farmer, whose favorite players are Justin Leonard and David Duval, never gets overly excited on the golf course, and the spate of aces did nothing to change that. The first one resulted in a “Yes!” and a high-five.
Now, he just smiles.
Despite the six aces, Farmer says he doesn’t stand over a tee shot on a par 3 thinking about the next one.
“I’m just trying to hit it at the hole,” he said.
