Harrison City native Dave Antill makes ace at USGA Mid-Am qualifier

Bill Beckner

Dave Antill did not qualify for the U.S. Mid-Amateur, but the former Hannastown Golf Club member made a lasting memory in his attempt to play in the national championship.

Antill, playing in a USGA qualifier Monday at Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, Ohio, made a hole-in-one on the 198-yard, par-3 seventh hole. He hit an 8-iron and saw the ball go in.

“I was ready to withdraw because I couldn’t walk from severe knee pain,” Antill said. “Somehow, I played through on one leg . I didn’t fair too well on the back nine as the pain took its toll.”

Antill, of Dublin, Ohio and formerly of Harrison City, shot 7-over-par 79 and finished tied for 36th.

Antill is a former Westmoreland County Senior Amateur champion. He moved to Ohio in December to be closer to his daughter.

The top three players — Nicholas Reardon, Michael Cress and Andrew Montooth, all from Columbus — advanced to the Mid-Amateur set for Sept. 14-19 at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colo.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
