Boy hits a hole-in-one with Tiger Woods – level 2

15-03-2016 07:00

In Texas, Tiger Woods, the golfing legend, built a golf course at his home and recently opened it. Crowds of people came to visit, including a group of young golfers.

One golfer, an eleven-year-old boy, wanted to try out the course, so he stepped up to hit the first-ever shot at the first hole. The par was 348 metres, and not only did he hit the ball far enough, it then rolled into the hole, giving him a hole-in-one in front of Tiger Woods. The crowd applauded while Tiger hugged him with pride.

Difficult words: golf course (the area where you play golf), par (how far you have to hit a golf ball at a hole), applaud (to yell and to clap happily).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you try to hit a hole-in-one in golf in front of Tiger Woods?
