Dumas shoots his age

For 15 years, John Dumas has been golfing with his wife and recently, he shot his rightful age of 80 at the Wailua Golf Course.

Murakoshi hits hole-in-one

Michael Murakoshi of First Hawaiian Bank hit a hole-in-one at Princeville Makai Golf Course at the Kauai United Way Golf Tournament.

Murakoshi used a six iron on Woods 2 (174 yards). Witnesses were Jeff Murata, Wally Rezentes, Jr. and Jamie Matsumura.

The Woods 2 hole was a qualifying hole for the 5 closest to the pin to win a Million Dollars, which unfortunately Murakoshi could not hit another hole-in-one to win, though he did win a Nike Driver, compliments of Hole-In-One Insurance provided by King Auto Center.

Kaya nails an ace, too

Lihu’e’s Eric Kaya carded a hole-in-one at the Wailua Golf Course on Dec. 14 on the third hole (226 yards).

He used a Callaway X-18 3-iron. Kaya’s been golfing for nearly 33 years and this was his second ace. Witnesses were Russell Onuma, Lyman Kahaunaele, and Pat Henriques.

Ferreira gets lucky at Kiahuna

Ernie Ferreira slammed home a hole-in-one on the third hole (138 yards) at the Kiahuna Golf Course. He used a 7-iron at the Kuku’iolono Tournament on Dec. 17.

Kapa’a’s Oshita cards an ace

Kapa’a’s Clayton Oshita will remember Dec. 16 for the rest of his life because he nailed a hole-in-one on the 17th hole (157 yards) at the Kaua’i Lagoons’ Kiele Course.

“Great course — best in Hawai’i,” Oshita exclaimed.

He used an 8-iron Hogan 440 from the blue tees. George Costa, Ernest Tamashiro, and R. Fernandez witnessed the lucky shot.

Garciaparra agrees to terms with Dodgers

LOS ANGELES — Five-time All-Star Nomar Garciaparra agreed to a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Team spokesman Josh Rawitch said Sunday that Garciaparra passed a physical and will be introduced today at a Dodger Stadium news conference.

Garciaparra also considered the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros. He spent several hours with Dodgers executives Thursday and Friday — the first day with agent Arn Tellem, the second with his wife, former soccer star Mia Hamm.
