Oswestry Golf Club’s junior captain proved his ability to hit the perfect shot is not down to luck after sinking a hole-in-one one the same hole on two separate occasions.

Dan Potts was playing in the club’s junior medal competition on Friday evening, when he managed to hit a stunning shot to finish three under par.

The 141-yard hole has proved to be one of Dan’s favourites at the club, after previously managing a hole-in-one in another event.

His effort proved it was no fluke the first time round, and went on to achieve a great finish of 72 gross nett 63 to win the junior medal.

Oswestry Golf Club professional Richard Edwards said: “It was a great shot and a privilege to see it happen.

“I was working on technique with some of the younger golfers at a lesson and managed to catch the shot from a distance.

“We all thought it was a very good shot, and then learned that Dan had walked up to the green to find the ball had landed straight in the hole.

“He landed the shot around 10 feet short of the hole, and it landed in after rolling towards the flag.

“For him to manage it once is incredibly rare, but to do it twice is putting him in an exclusive club, especially on the same hole.”
