Saskatoon’s Cory King feels there is some luck on his side when it comes to golf, but karma might be a wild card in the deck as well.

In early May, The Willows Club member became the first player of the 2023 hole-in-one club with an ace at a Saskatchewan course.

King is also behind the Pink Wig Foundation, started in honour of his girlfriend Tracy Dinh, who succumbed to cancer at the age of 26 in May of 2012.

Dinh was an avid golfer and her parents still play at The Willows Club today.

King spoke with Golf Saskatchewan’s Clark Stork about his remarkable string of aces that began when he was 16 years old to how the sport of golf has allowed him to cope with Tracy’s loss, keep her memory alive, and his love for the sport.
