With the wind at his back, he holed out a No. 7 iron shot on the par-3, 155-yard No. 5 hole. "I never thought it would reach the green, let alone go in the hole," he said after the ace. He was playing with Jim Walker and his daughter Ann, also of Wesley, and when the shot lit short of the green, Koppen said he quit watching it momentarily. Then Walker told him it was rolling straight for the hole and the threesome watched amazed as the ball went into the cup. Koppen has been playing golf for about eight years. He is a rural mail carrier at Wesley. Oh yes — he shot a 47 for his nine, bagging a par, birdie, the eagle (Hole in One) and some other unmentionable scores. Can't blame him though — an "Ace" would shake up most any golfer. Exclusive Advance Photo by Mike Stillman.
