Jarvis holes double delight

Andrew Jarvis celebrated his birthday in style at the North Sound Golf course – by getting a hole in one.

Jarvis, who was playing in the fourth qualifying round of the national team qualifying competition on his 16th birthday on Saturday, teed it up on the 130-yard par 3 first hole and hit the magic shot.

Many golfers go their whole lives without achieving this feat and the odds against even low handicap players making one are exceptionally high.

To do so under pressure in a competition is a great achievement, especially at such a young age and having only played seriously for a couple of years.

Jarvis did not let the excitement affect his game though and he ended the day with a score of 76.

Tradition has it that a golfer who makes a hole in one buys everyone a drink. Given his age, it was Andrew’s father Robin, who came to collect him after his round, who stepped in and did the honors.
