    AN emergency room nurse who played golf after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reopened courses made a hole-in-one.

    "I don't know if I deserved to get this because of what I do. It's mostly pure luck, but it was nice. Certainly something to enjoy with all that is going on," Kelly Spitz told the Battle Creek Enquirer.

    Spitz, who works at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, had the ace on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) at Cedar Creek Golf Club in Battle Creek. She has only played a few rounds of golf.

    "I was just excited to hit a good shot," Spitz said. "So when I saw it hit the green I was super excited. Then it kept rolling and rolling and then it disappeared."
