Barry Hitchcock - Hole In One - 7th October 2020

 

What an inaugural SbN Senior’s Championship with members hitting Holes In One in each of the two rounds. Last week it was John Smith on Constable, this week it was the turn of Barry Hitchcock on the 194 yard par 3 9th hole.

An excellent 5 wood to the green pitched just short of the hole but Barry and his playing partners, Peter Garnett & Andy Higginson, didn’t see where it went from there. A search beyond the green proved fruitless until one of the group found the ball nestled in the bottom of the hole. Barry’s second HIO was duly celebrated both on the course and in the clubhouse later. Well done Barry.

To quote Barry “It is not too often that anyone achieves three 1’s in one round as he then went on to hit an 11 on the par 5 14th hole with an unfortunate 5 off the tee - oh the joy of medal rounds !!
