At a charity golf tournament in September 1998, John Marsala, of Carle Place, met his wife, Mareen -- and shot a hole in one. "It was a good omen," he says. He selected his customized plate after he repeated that golfing rarity in June 2001. "Now many people are honking at me on the road," he says. And what of the tradition of the hole-in-one golfer buying a round of drinks for anyone playing in the same group? The bartender hired for the fundraiser provided the drinks the first time, Marsala says, and the second time, he was just playing in a twosome.(Credit: Newsday / Ann Silverberg)
