Fenland golfer wins nearest to pin prize...by sinking hole-in-one.
A GOLFER bagged a nearest to the pin prize at a charity competition...by sinking a hole-in-one.
Simon Hayes, 43, from March, “couldn’t believe it” when his 154-yard tee shot ended up rolling straight into the eighth hole at Forest Pines Golf Club, near Scunthorpe.
The feat at an NSPCC charity golf day was Hayes’ first ace in eight years of playing the game.
He said: “I teed off and thought it was a decent shot so turned to put the club back in my bag.
“I saw it hit the green but actually missed it rolling in. My mate shouted ‘it’s gone in the hole’ but I thought he was joking. I couldn’t believe it.”
Hayes used an eight iron to sink the hole-in-one at the par three and received a bottle of champagne and a trophy for his efforts.
