Sept. 7 proved to be Edgar Rave's lucky day as he scored a hole-in-one at Egremont Country Club.

Using a Cobra Pitching Wedge, Rave guided his Callaway golf ball straight to the bottom of the cup on the 140-yard, par-3 sixth hole.

Playing partners Michael Duffy and Neil McDevitt witnessed Rave's perfect shot.
