80-year-old Norb Wronkowski learned how to hold a golf club about 50 years ago.

Tuesday, June 12, 2018, Wronkowski sunk a hole-in-one at CNC Links in Manitowoc. This might be his first hole-in-one of the season, but it's his fourth hole-in-one ever.

His first hole-in-one was back in 1996. His second was in 2001. His last two hole-in-ones were within a year of each other: one in November and the other this week. The last two hole-in-ones were at CNC Links on the same Par 3 6th hole.

Norb said he isn't a pro, but just lucky.

"The pros, yeah, usually when they hit the ball, they know where it's going. When I hit the ball, I watch where it's going, so it's a little different," said Wronkowski.

Wronkowski's family pitched in to buy him a season pass at CNC Links so he can play as much as he wants.

Workers at CNC Links said this was the first hole-in-one of they year and very well deserved for Norb.
