Loftsson's ace highlights golf's first day

The 49ers' pursuit of a sixth consecutive Atlantic 10 golf title got off to a good start today when Charlotte junior Olafur Loftsson had a hole in one on the 15th hole in the first round of the A-10 Championship at Mission Inn Golf Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

Loftsson, who was the individual runner-up last year to then-teammate Corey Nagy, is trying to help Charlotte become the first team in Atlantic 10 history to win a league championship six straight years.
