Watch: Four-year-old Rocco Figaretti makes hole-in-one in West Virginia

If you’re feeling good about the state of your golf game right now, wait until you see this.

Four-year-old Rocco Figaretti is enamored with golf. He started practicing a little over a year ago at the age of three. According to his dad, Mario, he’s constantly hitting balls around the yard at home.

The practice is paying off for little Rocco, who made a hole-in-one on Friday at Oglebay Park’s par 3 course in Wheeling, West Virginia.

“He swings right-handed with a left-handed grip and it works for him, so I don’t think we’re going to switch it,” said Mario with a laugh . “It’s just been really fun watching him develop a love for the game because he really does spend a lot of time out here in the yard hitting golf balls.”

Not only did Rocco make an ace, but he did it on the first hole in Crocs. And don’t even think about arguing it’s not an official hole-in-one because it happened on a par 3 course. Watching his reaction – and his father’s – as he races down the hill to the green is the joy we’re all searching for on the course, and it should be celebrated.

Congratulations to Rocco, we hope this is just the start.
