Hull Says “It Counts to Me”
Brett Hull walked to the 17th tee knowing that he had already completed his practice round Tuesday, having started with his amateur partners on the par-3 17th hole earlier in the day. But, he couldn’t resist.
His 8-iron from 165 yards away found the hole for an apparent hole-in-one. But wait! It wasn’t official, since his round was already complete. He’d have to continue and go another 18 holes to make it official.
Not according to Hull.
“It counts to me, and that’s my seventh,” said one of the all-time leading scorers in the NHL, who didn’t begin playing golf until in his 20s.
