Two local golfers dealt aces on the links in the last week.

Robert Rankin of Decatur needed only one shot with his seven iron to cover the 142-yard par 3 on the fourth hole at Bridgeport Country Club last Friday.

On Sunday at Indian Creek Golf Club in Carrollton, Decatur 12-year-old Drew Jones hit a hole-in-one on the 125-yard, par 3, 17th hole with his pitching wedge. The ace was part of a 74 he shot for the practice round before the Northern Texas PGA event.

He ended up winning the 12-13 age division at the event Monday. The son of Steve and Jana Jones shot an 82.

Dylan Rottner, 15, of Decatur took fourth place with an 84 in the 14-15 division. He is the son of Andrew and Lisa Rottner.
