NMJC Employee Hits a Hole-in-One

February 27, 2006 — Hobbs, NM. New Mexico Junior College employee Robert Turner recently experienced an event that called for witness statements.

Turner, NMJC coordinator of placement and minority recruitment, shot a hole-in-one at Ocotillo Park Golf Course.

The weekend duffer said he approached the second hole, a 169-yard par 3, with a "soft seven with a slight fade."

"I thought maybe I knocked it long," Turner said. "But Dr. (Pat) Gorman saw it in the hole after he putted out."

Turner said the event was a first for him and was thankful he had witnesses to the spectacular feat.
