Three holes-in-one in close succession at Warwick Golf Club
GOLF: Hole-in-one shots are rare but not at the Warwick Golf Club.
Three players are still celebrating after perfect shots on three different holes.
Greg Wallace joined the Warwick Golf Club three years ago after five years of social golf.
He was playing in the same group as John Devitt and Ross Kingston went he hit his hole-in-one on the 13th, a hole with a dam on the fairway. He used a pitching wedge for his perfect 122m shot.
“I thought my shot went into the bunker behind but John Devitt was more confident of a hole-in-one than I was,” Wallace said.
“He went to have a look and called us over as I was heading to the bunker. It just came out of the blue and is the pinnacle for any golfer.”
After 37 years of golf off and on, Wayne Wiedman has a hole-in-one.
He landed his on the 170m fifth using a five iron.
“Dave Craig was in my group and said if it wasn’t in the hole, it had gone past,” Wiedman said.
His previous closest was on a 90m fairway at City in Toowoomba when he was 5cm from the hole.
“I had six months off golf and have been back for two months.
“A hole-in-one does give me an incentive to play more,” he said.
Peter Farrell has two holes-in-one this year, the first in January on the 134m seventh and the second on the 147m 16th.
His recent perfect shot was on a Wednesday at Sporters and he is now hoping for a third.
“I was having a pretty ordinary day. It is just unbelievable to hit two holes-in-one this year,” he said.
He is eyeing off a third on any of the six par threes.
GOLFERS and non-golfers are welcome to play in the Akooramak Care of Older Persons Annual Charity Golf Day on Sunday.
