You wait a lifetime for a hole-in-one, and then your playing partner spoils your moment of glory.
Most club golfers get what, a single hole-in-one in their entire golfing life? So mark me down for a point right? I mean, the only way you can halve the hole is if your opponent also get a hole-in-one.
It would be a heck of a claim to fame for a club if that was to happen…
Step up Aaron Saddleton, of Sprowston Manor, who was playing in a match for the Norfolk Handicap League.
“I couldn’t believe it. I don’t think I will ever experience that again. It’s a game of golf I will never forget. After I hit my hole-in-one, I even remember Mark saying something like, ‘So that’s what I need to do,’ and then he did exactly the same thing. I can’t believe I hit a hole-in-one but didn’t win the hole.”
