Milton Ozaki picked up a special gift from the 1,2 Golf Club.
However, the Robert’s store owner earned a different kind of hardware than he’s used to seeing in his famed jewelry store.
Ozaki was recently crowned the Ace of Aces for the 1,2 Golf Club, which handed him the coveted trophy and bragging rights.
“I got lucky. Everything I hit bounced off a tree and shot right back into the fairway,” Ozaki said.
Past Ace of Aces champions include Mike Oride (2000-01), Dennis Nakahara (2002), Calvin Murashige (2003), Carol Uohara (2004), and Morton Yamasaki (2005).
Noted as the oldest golf club on Kaua’i, the group is made up of 30 individuals from around the island, who golf twice a month at Wailua Golf Course.
