Florida man becomes oldest golfer to make hole-in-one

SARASOTA, FL (WFLA/NBC) -

A Florida man sets a national record by becoming the oldest golfer to make a hole-in-one and it was just one of many for the man who's been out on the links for more than 90 years.

Gus Andreone is 103 and constantly has the young players running after him.

He's been out on the course since the 1920s and says he's still out there three times a week.

Wednesday, he scored a hole in one, with PGA saying he's the oldest golfer to ever make that shot. But he's had eight hole in ones in his lifetime. His first one being in 1939.

He credits his longevity to luck, faith, and having a good attitude.

Gus says he plans to keep playing for as long as his body will allow.

He isn't just a lucky golfer.

He's also won lottery prizes -- twice -- once in Pennsylvania, and more recently in Florida.
