It’s one thing to get a hole-in-one if you’re playing with your buddies, but it’s another thing to get one at a state tournament when the pressure is at its highest.
On Tuesday morning, day two of the ‘A’ boys state golf tournament at the Madison Golf and Country Club, Sioux Valley junior Kyan Overbo lined up on the No. 10 tee box for his first swing of the day. He grabbed his 9-iron, pegged it for a 150-yard shot, and swung.
“I wasn’t really thinking much other than I was really nervous, I could feel it in my stomach, because there were a bunch of people there, and I was confused why there was so many people there,” Overbo chuckled. “When I hit it, it looked super good, and I knew.”
The ball hit the front part of the green and started to roll. As it inched closer and closer to the pin, Overbo knew he would soon see the ball disappear into the bottom of the cup.
“I was more so thinking getting on the green, I wasn’t even really even aiming at the hole, just wanted to hit the green so I could have a putt at it,” Overbo explained. “I freaked out, turned around, and everyone else was freaking out too, and it was awesome. It was just a really cool moment.”
