Albatross for Sam!
Having never had a hole in one since he started playing, Sam had his first one on Boxing Day on the par three 8th. A gentle pitching wedge into a slight breeze and the ball never looked off line. Landing about 6 feet past the hole it spun back nicely and into the hole!
Then last Sunday, playing in the winter league, he had the perfect start with an eagle 3 on the 1st. Despite missing a birdie opportunity on the 2nd he was still feeling pretty confident going onto the next tee. A decent looking tee shot towards the left hand bunker looked a good line. However, after spending almost all of the allocated time looking for his ball, he was about to give up when, in desperation, he looked in the hole to find the lost ball! His second hole in one in just a couple of weeks and his first ever albatross!
5 under after just three holes! As Sam said’ It doesn’t get much better then this and something I’ll probably never do again.’
Finishing with a scorching 28 shots on the front 9 the match was over and the game was won!
No doubt there will be a surge in the number of members wanting a lesson or two as we all try to emulate this fantastic achievement! Well done Sam!
