LYNNFIELD — The goal of every golfer is to record a hole in one. Jed Caswell’s dream came true at a young age of 17, during a leisurely summer afternoon round this past
Saturday at Reedy Meadow Golf Course in Lynnfield. He aced the third hole, a 210-yard par 3, using his 4-hybrid club.
Caswell said, “The ball was on target, but I thought I had over hit the green because the afternoon sun made it difficult to see the ball. We then walked up to the pin and there it was sitting in the cup,” adding that it was an “unreal feeling!”
Jed is no stranger to the Reedy course, as he has worked at the course for over three years and plays just about every day. He is frequently seen walking back and forth to the course from his nearby home on Forest Hill.
Jed also caddies at Salem Country Club throughout the summer. He will serve as Lynnfield High School’s golf captain this coming fall. “It’s a very busy time, but I wouldn’t change anything about my love for the game of golf,” Jed said.
Many people have helped Jed’s young golf career including his coaches, local golf pro Donnie Lyons, his grandfather, and many more. Jed plans to attend college next year and continue to play golf as much as he can. He is looking forward to the next chance at an ace.
