Trio of area golfers record holes-in-one

Three golfers - Judy Tonn, Bill Murphy and Dave Knox - fired holes-in-one recently on Rogue Valley golf courses.

Central Point's Tonn registered her first ace Tuesday on the ninth hole at Cedar Links Golf Course.

Tonn, who coaches Crater High's girls golfers, used a 6-iron on the 128-yard hole during Executive Women's Golf Association play.

At Red Mountain Golf Course, Murphy shot a hole-in-on on the 184-yard No. 5 hole, using a 3-wood.

Neil McKinney, Ed Premo and Rick Sharrard witnessed the shot.

Knox, of Medford, notched the first of his career Wednesday during Senior Tour play at StoneRidge Golf Club.

Knox aced the 17th hole with a pitching wedge. It played to 124 yards.

His playing partners were Don McClure, Earl Wood and John Ferris.
