deaf pro golfer Kevin Hall places in top 10


Kevin Hall had a “bad start” during his third round at the Ocala Open on
Friday, March 23, 2018 when he was unable to salvage his par putt at the
first hole.  Then he went on to make three birdies on the front nine for 2
under. He had unbelievable birdie putt at 4th hole which was ranked the
most difficult course (669 yards par 5).   His putting streak peaked out
after first nine holes.  On top of this, he couldn’t get his ball on
fairways like he did on the first nine.  Then he had three straight bogeys
at 13,14 &15.  He even missed second shot on the 16th green, but he used
his putter to get his ball out of the apron side and into the cup for a
birdie!  After this hole, he breezed back his normal stance for the last
two holes for a seventh place finish in this three day tournament. in
front of applauding audience.   Kevin did have a lot to show on his scorecards,
(67-69-71 = 207)  with 11 birdies and five bogeys.  He has achieved his
stamina and consistency at least 90% of the time.  As soon as he finished
his round on Friday afternoon, he was already heading down to Miami for a
two-day Advocates Open tee time on the following morning at 7:47 AM!  He
won this tournament last year!
