“It’s an awful lot of coincidences, but the good Lord was smiling,” Lennon told News 12 Long Island. “I never really liked the hole, but now I like it a lot more, because I lived and I got a hole-in-one.”

Running Start Dept.
Just to show that MLB hasn’t cornered the market on obscure records, the Texans’ Deshaun Watson broke Tim Tebow’s record for the longest TD run by a QB making his first NFL start, with a 49-yarder against the Bengals Thursday night.
If it’s any consolation, Tebow’s 40-yarder remains the record for a left-hander.
