Former president George W. Bush sinks first hole-in-one

Preston Hollow neighbor and the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush sunk his first ace ever Wednesday.

Bush, 72, hit a hole-in-one at the 12th hole of the Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. The hole is a par 3 and listed as 164 yards from the white tees, according to Golfweek.

The former president celebrated his sports victory with a post on Instagram captioned: “With coaching from The Bush Center CEO Ken Hersh and board members Mike Meece and Bill Hickey, I scored my first hole-in-one at the home of our Warrior Open at the AT&T Bryon Nelson. Next golf goal: live to 100 so I can shoot my age.”

The post has received more than 100,000 likes so far.

Trinity Forest Golf Club is located southeast of downtown Dallas and hosts both The Bush Institute Warrior Open, a tournament started in 2011 for military personnel who were seriously wounded or injured since Sept. 11, 2001, and the PGA Tour event AT&T Bryan Nelson Tournament. This year’s Nelson tournament will be the second ever play at Trinity Forest.
