Golf: Nord notched his second ace, at age 80

Elk River retiree Jim Nord, 80, notched his second hole-in-one July 2 golfing with wife Mary at Madden’s on Gull Lake. Nord used a Callaway No. 4 on the 180-yard first hole, a par 3.

“I was looking around for the ball,” Nord said, “when Mary checked the cup, and there it was.”

Nord shot 89 for the round. He said he’s never shot his age like some seniors do, but two aces are a nice consolation.
