Taking advantage of the warm winter weather, Truckee’s Sean McMullen, 9, decided to play golf this past Sunday rather than risk the less-than-perfect ski condition here in town.

Sean, his brother Connor and father Marc joined the Elvrum family for a round of golf at Wolf Run Golf Club in Reno.

Sean stepped up to the tee on the fifth hole — a 110-yard par-3. He chose his driver and, after a little advice from his brother, struck the ball.

The ball landed on the green and rolled straight for the cup.

Kevin, Otto, Owen and Olivia Elvrum, along with Connor and his father, watched as Sean’s ball struck the pin and stayed what looked like, right next to the hole.

As the group approached the green it noticed that the ball had wedged itself between the flagstick and the hole and was in fact a hole-in-one.
