I Do Requests

Jim asked for an odd tidbit about Nixon to help cheer him here is a pretty useless fact.

Nixon was the first president to get a hole-in-one in golf. He did it before his presidency, while playing golf at the Bel Air Country Club in 1961.

Two other presidents also made holes in one: Eisenhower and Ford. Both of them did so after the presidency, and Ford did it three times.

You're talking exclusive of Putt-Putt, right? Cause I'm pretty sure Ford had a couple of holes-in-one at miniature golf during his tenure.

Actually Clinton did it three times too...well, it depends what the definition of "is" is, but legally he did it.
