Warren Tiahrt, as Is His Habit, Scores a Hole-in-One

Alan Doan

On Sept. 17 Warren Tiahrt made a hole-in-one on hole number 6 at The Preserve, bringing his total number of aces to eight!

On this scenic par 3 over a deep ravine, Warren grabbed his trusty Cobra pitching wedge and hit a solid shot that landed about 15 feet left of the pin, took a couple of small bounces, rolled gently down the slope, and disappeared into the hole.

The shot was witnessed by Dick Clark and Doug Anderson. Doug seems to be Warren’s good luck charm. Warren has scored five of his eight holes-in-one at SaddleBrooke, and Doug has witnessed three of them.

When asked how long he’s been playing, Warren said, “I bought a set of Ben Hogan clubs with my first paycheck after graduating from college in 1959 and took up the game using Hogan’s book as my bible.” Turned out to be a good book, indeed.

Warren’s threesome and two foursomes playing behind them enjoyed a few cold ones on the patio, courtesy of Warren.

Congrats to Warren Tiahrt, an 86-year-old golfer who periodically shoots his age—and puts his tee shot in the hole with some regularity, too.
