Kenneth Seyler

Many golf enthusiasts play the game for years or sometimes all of their lives and never hit a hole-in-one. Kenneth Seyler, a Manila senior, sank his first hole in one on March 13 at the Big Lake Country Club in Manila on Number 4.

He had several witnesses to the fact as he was golfing a practice round with fellow teammates Klayton Seyler (his brother), Jacob Walker and Aaron Bloom.

Seyler has been a member of the Manila High School golf team for four years.

He admits that he was surprised and excited about the shot. He knew he was close, but didn't realize he had made a perfect shot.

Seyler completed his high school golf career last week. He has enjoyed being part of the golf team through his high school years, he commented. In addition to golf, he was a starter on the Manila High School basketball team.

Once basketball season was over, Seyler could be found at the golf course practicing every day weather permitted.

He is the son of Dennis and Candy Seyler of Manila. He plans to attend college at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway on an academic scholarship.

Seyler is looking forward to many more years of golf and hopefully that won't be the last hole-in-one for him.

His name will be added to list of other golfers displayed at Big Lake Country Club that have made holes-in-one.
