"My Best Shot of the Day"
Congratulations William Gray on your hole-in-one on 16 on Wednesday, 3 March. This is William's second ace at Atlantic Beach Links. "My first hole-in-one was on the (old) 17th in 2015 - just before the nine's were swopped, said William.
I used a 6-iron and felt that I had hit my best shot of day. But never thought it would be in the hole. In fact I said to my playing partners Dave Gallagher and Alec Freemen that I had meant to take a 5-iron from my bag.”
Here's to many more "Best Shots" William and we look forward to your name going up on the Honours Board.
This is the 3rd member hole-in-one at Atlantic Beach Links in 2021 - and how co-incidental that it is on the 3rd day of the 3rd month.
