John Lynch recorded his first-ever hole-in-one after more than 30 years of playing golf at the 146-yard third at Thetford. He hit a hybrid five iron and it was on line all the way until it disappeared from view behind a bunker. He said he had a fuzzy feeling as he walked to the green and could not see his ball. He did check behind the green first, just in case, but then found the ball nestling in the bottom of the cup. His playing partners were Frank Knight, Peter Yule and Doug Atkins.
First ace: John Lynch had a hole in one at the third at Thetford.
