Hole in ONE!!

Josh Lewis, BeauTech’s designated Golf Pro, had an historic shot last week at GEAM’s 4th Annual Lone Star Heroes Classic. Josh’s second hole of the tourney, #17 on Bear Creek West, was set up for 157 yards from the blue tees. Josh’s shot cleared the front right bunker, bounced towards the right center of the green, and…rolled right into the cup!! A hole in one for Josh and certainly the first hole in one for team BeauTech!

Way to go Josh!!
