Todd Simms scored his first career Hole In One on the second day of the Foster Open. He was playing in the same foursome as Jim McCamant who accomplished the same feat the day before. Simms made his history making shot on #8 using an 8 iron. Only moments before his partner Mark McCamant scored an eagle 2 on the 7th hole, not a bad looking team scorecard for those two holes. Congratulations to Todd.
