BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- An Ohio man who says he's not much of a golfer pulled off a feat that not even some of the best players have matched.

Ed Platzer of Bowling Green knocked in a left-handed hole-in-one last month, 15 years after he hit a right-handed hole-in-one.

Platzer says he's a natural lefty but learned to play right-handed when he couldn't find any left-handed clubs. He started hitting from the left side four years ago when he finally found the correct clubs.

The United States Golf Register tracks holes-in-one. It says it couldn't find anyone who has matched Platzer's achievement in its database that covers the past 13 years.
