Tom Kerrick’s First Hole In One

After years and years of practice (both law and golf), Tom Kerrick finally got his first Hole In One on Friday, Sept 22, 2017.  It just happened to come during the BG Warren County Bar Association’s annual golf tournament, the Barristers Open, so there were in fact witnesses to this incredible feat!  It came on Hole 11 at BGCC and was a slam dunk from 120 yards!! There is no truth to the rumor that he will be retiring from his legal practice to go on the Seniors Tour.
