AM­A­TEUR DE­FIES ODDS OF 1.9 TRIL­LION TO ONE

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE -

A lady golfer had not one. Not two. But three aces as she de­fended her club cham­pi­onship ti­tle at Cro­ham Hurst Golf Club in Croy­don last month. Ali Gibb, who plays off six, made two aces on the same hole – the par-3 5th – be­fore com­plet­ing her hat-trick on her sec­ond visit to the 11th. She ended the 36-hole com­pe­ti­tion with a nine, two eights, sixes, fives, fours, threes, twos and three ones on her card. “I couldn’t be­lieve what hap­pened,” she told TG. “It felt like a dream and I was in stunned si­lence. I had had three holes-in-one be­fore, so to dou­ble my to­tal in the space of five hours was quite ex­tra­or­di­nary.”
