Promoted: The PGA Tour’s AT&T Byron Nelson, in an Instagram post by former President George W. Bush, who reacted to his first hole-in-one, at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. Said the former president: "With coaching from @thebushcenter CEO Ken Hersh and board members Mike Meece and Bill Hickey, I scored my first hole-in-one at the home of our Warrior Open and the @attbyronnelson." Bush used an 8-iron on the 12th hole. (The yardage was not disclosed, but the club scorecard lists the white tees at 164 yards.) He added in a self-deprecating zinger: "Next golf goal: Live to 100 so I can shoot my age." The Bush Institute Warrior Open, which promotes sports as rehabilitation for wounded service members, will be played May 5-6 at Trinity Forest, just ahead of the AT&T Byron Nelson on May 9-12.
