While a professional golfer might not find it too difficult to make a hole in one on a par 3 course, accomplishing the feat isn’t quite as easy for most amateurs. But not Rocco Figaretti!
The 4-year-old West Virginia boy scored a hole in one on his first attempt at Oglebay Park’s Par 3 course this week, his dad, Mario Figaretti, revealed in a social media post.
HOLE IN ONE!!!! Hole #1 at Oglebay’s Par three course. Rocco = 4yrs old. 8/21/20 He practices all the time In the yard. To say I’m proud would be an understatement!

The younger Figaretti began working on his swing just after he turned 3, his dad says.
“He swings right-handed with a left-handed grip and it works for him, so I don’t think we’re going to switch it,” Mario Figaretti says.
“It’s just been really fun watching him develop a love for the game because he really does spend a lot of time out here in the year hitting golf balls.”
