A Six-Year-Old Girl Hits a Hole-In-One and Refuses to Celebrate
As a parent I was under the impression that we wanted our kids to be excited and to enjoy their accomplishments. According to this story and the fact that it is illegal to spike a football we should teach our kids to remain calm when they do something amazing.
ESPN reported that last week, six-year-old Reagan Kennedy of Bloomington, Illinois was golfing at a course called The Links at Ireland Grove with her family. And when she stepped up to the 85-yard par-three third hole, she hit a HOLE-IN-ONE.
She didn't scream. She didn't celebrate. All she did was calmly walk back to the cart.
Why? Reagan says that she's been playing golf since she was two, and back then her dad told her to always stay calm, cool, and relaxed on a golf course. So she did. After her hole-in-one she stayed calm because she respects the game.
Her 13-year-old sister Cheyenne told her that when you get a hole-in-one, though, it actually IS alright to celebrate a little.
