An ace and a hole to forget for Owen

It was a story of a good hole and a bad hole when Owen Mills represented Thetford in the Welwyn Garden City Commemorative Jug, which is open to all Club Champions.

In the morning round Owen was going well until a triple bogey at the 18th - his ninth hole - spoiled his card. He got back on track to return a one-over-par 71.

In the afternoon he came unstuck at the same hole - this time he had a quadruple-bogey at what was his last hole of the competition for a round of 74.

This saw him drop back to ninth place overall, which is still a very respectable result.

And he had a significant highlight. 

At the 187-yard 12th he had a hole-in-one, his first in competitive play. "I hit a five-iron and it never left the flag, pitching about five-yards short and rolling on. I didn't actually see it go it go in but I always knew it was going to be close."

Unfortunately for him there was not a new BMW at stake, but he was delighted to receive a Welwyn GC shirt and shook hands with PGA professional Tom Lewis who is a member of Welwyn. 

Owen has previously recorded a hole-in-one at the third hole at Thetford.

The Welwyn tournament is linked to Sir Nick Faldo, who started his golf at the Hertfordshire club.
