Hitting a hole-in-one is pretty damn hard to do. But it also takes a little bit of luck. That’s the only way you can explain this “rubbish” golfer’s good fortune.
Occasional golfer Allan Errington, 43, was averaging seven shots a hole while playing at a staff event.Errington went for it all, and for once it paid off. The lucky hole-in-one must have given him a false sense of confidence, however. That might be one of the only ways to explain the fact that he lost 23 balls after hitting his ace. If he continues at that rate he’d have to sell his new £15,000 car in order to afford more balls.
But he hit a perfect shot on the par three 9th hole and it bounced once before going in - earning himself a Volkswagen Golf.
Perhaps after it’s all said and done Errington should stick to playing golf when new cars are at stake. That seems to be the only kind of golf he’s any good at.
