Press release from: Riderwood

SILVER SPRING, MD (October 19, 2011) – Riderwood retirement community resident Lou Cross – incredibly – has made 13 holes-in-one ever since he became a member of Heritage Harbour Golf Club in Annapolis, Maryland, 12 years ago. He made three holes-in-one during an eight-week period this past summer, concluding with an ace on the 87-yard No. 5 hole.

Cross, 87, is a retired nationally acclaimed pediatrician at the Mayo Clinic. He won the Heritage Harbour Golf Club’s championship in 1998. He does not believe in the tradition of buying drinks after making a hole-in-one, nor will he accept a drink from anyone else.

“It’s exciting to see the ball go into the cup,” said Cross, whose preferred greeting is a fist bump, not a handshake. “The hole is not big. Sometimes I feel like I can stand over it all afternoon and not be able to drop the ball in it.”

Cross once carried a 3 handicap. He is now a 7 handicap. He plays golf as much as he likes, crediting Alice, his wife of nearly 65 years, for allowing him to do so.

“I love the game,” Cross said. “ I enjoy life, I feel blessed.”
