IT WAS just a normal day for Nancy Bachand. Trundling along a Massachusetts highway at a steady 30mph in her Toyota she was minding her own business until Todd Obuchowski entered her life, or rather his golf ball did.

Obuchowski, a 34-year-old sheet metal worker, was enjoying a round at Haydenville's Beaver Brook course when he hit a wayward tee shot at the 116-yard, par-three fourth hole.

The ball shot over the green and on to the road where it ricocheted off the passenger side of the Bachand's car and rolled in the cup for a hole in one.

"I didn't know for sure until all these guys started shouting," Obuchowski said. The damage to the car worked out at $150 (pounds 95).
