Meanwhile, in Illinois

"Quiet, please."

How often have you heard that on the golf course? Most who play are aware that you're not supposed to make too much noise.

Count 6-year-old Reagan Kennedy among the most courteous golfers of all time. The Bloomington, Ill., junior golfer made a hole-in-one on the 85-yard, par-3 eighth hole at The Links at Ireland Grove last week.

How did she celebrate? She quietly walked back to the golf cart and put away her club.

According to a story by the Associated Press, Reagan's father had told her not to make any noise on the course.

She didn't realize that a hole-in-one is the exception.

Reagan has been playing golf since she was 2. Now that she has an ace to her name (something this golfer of 25+ years has yet to do), she is moving on to her next goal: Beating her dad.

Remember that name: Reagan Kennedy. She might make some noise in this game yet.
