Eight-year-old sinks ace on course

Eight-year-old sinks ace on course
Watching a professional golfer sink a hole-in-one on television gives fans of the sport just a taste of the atmosphere when this unbelievable fete is achieved.

The likes of Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Graeme McDowell have shown just how hard it is to perfect the skills and accuracy required to hit the ball straight into the cup.

But now, an eight-year-old boy has done exactly that as he became the youngest-ever player to sink an ace at Chesfield Downs golf club, reports the Comet.

Olly Catlin sunk the hole-in-one shot with a 7-iron on the 88-yard fifth hole of the club's Lannock Links par-three course, while competing in the Lannocks Lions Junior Par-3 Competition.

After taking up the sport just two years ago, Mr Catlin has been having lessons for the past 15 months - and they seem to have paid off.

"I was really pleased when I hit my hole-in-one," the young player told the news provider. "It was a brilliant surprise and the best bit of the day."
