FROM DE­LIGHT... TO DE­SPAIR

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - SI­MON GUMERY, SOLI­HULL

Play­ing in a char­ity event at Ful­ford Heath Golf Club in Earlswood, my reg­u­lar play­ing part­ner and I both had our first holes-in­one (on dif­fer­ent holes). Two days later, we played again; this time a tro­phy (medal) was up for grabs and fresh off our holesin-one, we fan­cied our chances. I was play­ing well and stood on the 11th tee (where I had pre­vi­ously tri­umphed) and promptly dis­patched two balls into the trees to the right and a third into the trees on the left! Need­less to say, I couldn’t find any of them. Laugh­ing about it later in the club­house over a pint, you can only imag­ine my feel­ing of ut­ter de­spair! Golf, who’d play it, eh?
