Family proves good luck for Omaha golfer

Frank Mancuso

There's nothing more fun than sinking a hole in one with your brothers in tow.

Unless it's your kids who are the witnesses.

Frank Mancuso has experienced both.

The retired dentist recently collected his third ace, and his second in two months, at the Pines Country Club on the 147 yard seventh hole with a 7-iron. Brothers John, Marty and Jim were witnesses.

There was lots of screaming, laughing and jumping around when the ball dropped 8 to 10 feet from the cup and rolled in.

They finished their round, played some cards and ate at Big Fred's Pizza to celebrate.

"It was a great day," Frank Mancuso said.

The brothers played lots of baseball and basketball together when they were kids, but now that they are in their 50s and 60s, things have changed.

"When you get to our age, there aren't many sports left," the 66-year-old Mancuso said. "As times goes on, you kind of eliminate those sports, and it comes down to golf. It's a lot of fun and a good social game."

Mancuso most often plays with his brother John, another dentist. John was his witness when he aced the 157-yard No. 3 at the Pines with his 5-iron on April 2.

John is the only one of the brothers without a hole in one.

"He's the best golfer of the bunch, too," Frank Mancuso said.

Frank Mancuso's first ace was in 2003. That one is hard to top because son Joe and daughter Becky and her husband, Adam Oldehoeft, were witnesses. His third child, Angie, doesn't play.

Mancuso's been retired for two years and usually plays twice a week. Family obligations limit any more time.

"We have too many grandbabies to play with," he said. "Ten grandkids, 10 and under."
