Florida Man Does The Unthinkable 2 days After Turning 100
Let us tell you about gentleman by the name of Herbert Dixon. Herbert resides in Bartow, Florida, which is about 40 miles east of Tampa. This week Herbert celebrated his 100th birthday and his friends and family helped him celebrate with a big birthday week. In fact, his golf club held a tournament in his name last weekend to honor him for everything he's brought to the game.
Herbert started golfing at the age of 14, and got pretty good. But he couldn't try out for the PGA Tour because of segregation. Over the years Herbert won over 50 tournaments in a league that was just for African-Americans. He was finally recognized for his accomplishments of the game when he was inducted into the National Black Golf Hall of Fame back in 1998.
To this day, he still plays almost every day. And check this out . . .
Two days after his 100th birthday last week . . . he got a HOLE-IN-ONE. Something many golfers don't ever see. But, it's not the first ace he's ever had. He's now had EIGHT of them over the course of 86 years. But obviously this one was pretty special.
