Hole in one for Doddington man Colin at Old Nene Golf Club Championships
ECSTATIC golfer Colin Harness couldn’t believe his luck when he scored a hole-in-one at the Old Nene Golf Club championships.
Playing off an 11 handicap, Mr Harness used a 3 wood club against a headwind to hit the amazing shot over the weekend of September 1 and 2.
Asked how he managed to achieve the feat, he said: “I don’t know. I just hit the ball as straight as a die.
“It is the first time I’ve had a hole-in-one and it is a surreal feeling. I’m very pleased.”
Mr Harness, of Cedar Avenue, Doddington, now gets a hole-in-one plaque and a special trophy to recognise his achievement.
