Golfer James Rollitt scored his first hole-in-one last Sunday.
The 27-year-old aced the par-four seventh hole while competing in the Wilson Shield Trophy at Rothbury Golf Club.
Rollitt was playing in a four ball with partners Ian Fenwick, Richard Lindsay and Keith Appleby.
He sent a straight drive towards the pin. The group was unaware that the ball had gone into the cup until one of his playing partners spotted a huge pitch mark short of the hole. They pulled out the flag and the ball had gone in.
His efforts have given birth to a new term at Rothbury – ‘the ball went in like a Rollitt’.
Rollitt, who has played at the Coquetdale course for the last 3/4 years and has a 28 handicap, was using a driver and a TaylorMade 55 golf ball.
