96-Year-old golfer hits nine hole-in-ones

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- For the average golfer, the chances of making a hole-in-one are about 12,000 to one, but one Michigan man has defied the odds -- and age.

Meet Steward Rosche. He's 96-years-old, and get this -- he's made nine hole-in-ones. He almost made another one just showing off for the cameras.

So what's his secret?

"I run on batteries, by the way. I'm on my third pacemaker. For my age, to still be playing golf is a minor miracle. I've had a lot of good luck in life."

Stewart, who's known as the "golf guru" said he tries to play about 27 holes each week.
