Golf pair hit con­sec­u­tive holes in one

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY JAMES HORE

ACES Terry, left, and John GOLF­ING pals beat odds of 17 mil­lion to one as they both hit their first holes in one in con­sec­u­tive shots.

Terry Hug­gins, 61, and John Hill, 57, were play­ing dou­bles when Terry sank a 165-yard shot with his six iron on the 14th hole.

Friend of 40 years John then used a seven wood to find the tar­get on the par three hole at Lang­don Hills golf course in Es­sex.

Terry, of Rain­ham, said: “When we re­alised, we were hug­ging each other.

“I didn’t re­alise the odds. It didn’t sink in until we got to the club­house. Peo­ple were telling us what an achieve­ment it was.”

John, of Hornchurch, added: “It was our first holes in one ever.”

Book­ies Wil­liam Hill said it would not have risked tak­ing the odds. CLOSE Jer­main & Bradley
