I was having a good game of golf on the day.
The 11th hole is normally a tricky one for me.
The elevated green is a very complex undulating green and if you're any distance from the pin a 2 put is often difficult.
I changed clubs from a 6 to a 7 iron. The ball flew as straight as a die. We heard it clatter the pin, but obviously couldn't see anything. I assumed my usual luck meant the ball would rebound off the green!
To my amazement when one of my playing partners got to the hole, he confirmed the good news!
One of the others took a couple of pictures of me, the ball and damage to the edge of the hole. These pictures were added to the club twitter account.
For info, I actually won the competition on the day and after the game enjoyed a well earned pint in the clubhouse with the other members!
