Jack Gaston, 81, a lifelong resident of Punxsutawney, aced hole No. 9 at the East Polo Park Golf Course in Davenport, Fla., near Orlando Jan. 9. Gaston used his four-iron on the 101-yard par three. Dennis States, Gaston’s brother-in-law, formerly of Punxsutawney, witnessed the shot. An avid golfer, Gaston spends several weeks each winter in Florida to keep up with his game. This is Gaston’s first career hole-in-one. In recognition of his rare achievement, Gaston received a trophy, had a plaque honoring the event placed on the club’s “Wall of Fame” and had his name entered into the national register.
