Mr. Jacobs has an affinity for hole # 15 at Simi Hills Golf Course. This became evident when, on Thu. January 10, 2008 he improved on a hole-in-one he had achieved the previous time he played the hole. How? Simple, this time he hit a "prettier" shot. Jim's back-to-back "Aces" certainly earns a FIRST in DPTGG History and possibly a place at Guinness.
