6-year-old Illinois girl quietly sinks hole in 1

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- A 6-year-old golfer sank a hole in one on a course in central Illinois and calmly walked back to her cart.

Why such a quiet reaction? Reagan Kennedy's father had told the Bloomington girl not to make a lot of noise on the course.

But 13-year-old Cheyenne Broquard says she told her younger sister that a hole in one was the one time a golfer could be excused for making a little noise.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that Kennedy made the 85-yard shot on the third hole at The Links at Ireland Grove last week.

Mother Erin Kennedy says her husband starting to put a golf club in Reagan's hands when she was only 2.

Reagan Kennedy says she's now working toward her ultimate golf goal -- beating her father.
