Luck strikes twice in two years at MMH Golf Outing

The Batesville Herald-Tribune

---- — Nick Farrell sank the hole-in-one shot at Margaret Mary Health’s annual golf outing Aug. 1 to win $10,000, said communications specialist Kasi Christin.

When asked about his reaction to the shot, Farrell said, “When the ball first disappeared from the green, I actually wasn’t sure it went in. I thought it may have just rolled over a ridge. But after the witness drove up to the green and confirmed it, there was a lot of hugging, including some people I didn’t know.”

He added, “The whole experience was a giant adrenaline rush. I was still shaking on the next tee box, which made it really hard to swing a club.”

This is the second year in a row a hole-in-one has been made at the event. Both were made on Hole 4, which is a Par 3 and 172 yards. Last year’s lucky shot was made by Chris Fledderman.

Each year, MMH hosts a golf outing, with the proceeds from this year’s fundraiser benefiting the Margaret Mary Health Foundation.

Christin gives “a special thank-you to Thurston Springer, the $10,000 hole sponsor. For over 30 years, Thurston Springer has provided their clients with competitively priced holistic wealth management, estate, retirement and financial planning.” More information about the firm is available at or by calling Jeff Triwedi at 800-235-0864.
