Hanna Dyar made her second career hole-in-one at Silver Lakes last week.

She was playing the Short Course, hole No. 2. She used a 46-degree wedge on the 91-yard par-3. Hanna is a freshman at Jacksonville State University after an impressive career at White Plains High School.

She has been sidelined by a weight-work accident that happened before the holidays. She has been working in rehab for lower back and shoulder problems the accident caused. She just started back on the golf course about a week and a half ago.

It’s a good start for what could be a great season for Dyar and the Gamecocks.

Cane Creek Grill

One of the best places to get some delicious food is the Cane Creek Grill. They make one of the best cheeseburgers around.

I love to eat there whenever I can. The chicken sandwich and the fries are the thin kind that I really like. It is a great place to play golf and to eat delicious food.
