Tony Hunter clinched the Sheerness Golf Club Championship title on Sunday – just two days after holing his first ace.
The Minster golfer, who plays off a three handicap, has been waiting decades for both and so had plenty to celebrate at the weekend.
“It was the best three days of golf I’ve ever had,” said the 40-year-old.
“On Friday during practice, I hit a hole-in-one and I was pleased about that. I couldn’t have started the weekend any better.
“It was my first hole-in-one in 29 years of playing golf and then on Sunday, after 20 years of trying, I won the club championship.
“I had a two-inch putt on the final hole and my family were there watching. It was the best feeling I’ve ever had in golf.”
Hunter sunk his hole-in-one on the 186-yard par-3 eighth during practice.
He said: “I could see it stay on the lip and then with my range-finder I watched it drop in. It took about four seconds but felt like a lifetime.
“I was over the moon but it did cost me some money in the bar after.”
