TRAVERSE CITY — In the 18 years that he's been playing golf, Jeff Rademacher has made four holes in one. Three of them came during otherwise nondescript outings with friends. With the latest one he won a new car. Rademacher, 36, of Traverse City, was the proud winner of a Mercedes Benz C300 when he buried an ace on the 155-yard 17th hole at The Bear at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa during last Thursday's Northwestern Michigan College Open. Figuring the odds of making a hole in one on that particular hole were so long, Rademacher said no one within his group was even talking about the possibility of winning the new luxury vehicle as they made their way to the 17th tee.
