Of course he was from Ohio.
"Look Ma - Both Hands"
By Kickntrue on 7/22/09
More hole-in-one shinanigans- this time a guy makes one right handed, then years later makes one as a lefty. My question: "Why so amphibious?"
Ed Platzer of Bowling Green knocked in a left-handed hole-in-one last month, 15 years after he hit a right-handed hole-in-one.The worst part is this dude says he's not even a golfer. I hate people like this. Can you imagine though- having 1 wedge or one rescue club in your bag to swing from the other side? Who hasn't been in one of those trouble spots where if you were just "other-handed" you'd be fine? It'd actually be a pretty smart play if you could actually pull it off. Who can hit a 3 iron anyway?

Good story; I love reading your posts. However, why do you bash Ohioans so much? What have we ever done to you?
Isn't Bowling Green in Kentucky?
@greendevil- both Kevin and I grew up in Pennsylvania in Penn State country. We can never win on the field (except the last 2 out of 3- YAH) so I have to compensate in some way. It's really just like when you see a 40 year old driving a cherry red corvette. Sorry :(
There is a Bowling Green in Ohio too. I know, crazy right, using the same name for 2 separate locations. Lazy naming bastards.
@dlounder- There's a town that sits on the border of Virginia and West Virginia called Bluefield. It's literally one town in 2 states... I'm not sure how they work out the politics and residency issue, but it's a little odd.
Actually, there is a Bowling Green in both Ohio and Kentucky.
Even if this man was from Bowling Green KY I believe Kickntrue would still take a shot at Ohioans :).
@mjaber - That's actually not too uncommon. The most famous example is Kansas City, which is in both Kansas and Missouri. Even more confusing is that the larger portion of the city (the one where all the sports teams play) is in Missouri, not Kansas.
i was beginning to think they were Michigan fans.
There is also a Bristol Tennessee and Bristol Virginia which is a shared city
Anybody ever heard of Shawn Clement? He's an instructor in Canada with a ton of instructional YouTube vids. He plays scratch golf from the left and right side. It's enough to make you sick.
