Golfer Eeley has an ace up his sleeve

THERE was a double dose of delight for an Ivinghoe member at the club’s August Midweek Stableford competition.

Club secretary Dave Eeley not only won the competition, but he did so in some style – bagging a hole-in-one on the par 3 eighth.

Eeley said: “It’s probably a once-in-a-lifetime result, even if I were to hit the same shot a thousand times!

But what makes it extra special is that it was one of the sweetest strikes of my round – I nailed it for once and got a really wonderful bonus into the bargain!”

The ace helped Eeley to total of 39 Stableford points, handing him a three-point victory over Alan Daniel. Brian Haworth was third.
