Wexford’s PGA Junior League

Hilton Head area PGA Junior Leagues garnered some national attention this week, as Harrison Mancill (representing the Country Club of Hilton Head) and John Berrigan (representing Wexford Plantation, coached by our very own James Scales!) both hit a hole-in-one last Friday on the SAME hole in the Junior League final match at the Country Club of Hilton Head. The two boys, ages 13 and 10, had back-to-back holes in one on the 89-yard, par-3 fifth hole.

According to the National Hole in One Registry, the odds of two players from the same foursome acing the same hole are 17 million to one.

Not only did these two players receive recognition locally in the Island Packet, the story was also picked up by the PGA AND the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. Congratulations to both players!
