TEENAGE golfer Oliver Brown hit his first hole-in-one last week.

The 16-year-old, who lives in West Walton, scored his ace at Sutton Bridge Golf Club's adult competition on Tuesday.

It was on the 104-yard par-three second hole.

Brown also impressed on Sunday, when he finished second in his handicap category at Sutton Bridge Golf Club's Captain's Day.

Judy Green, press secretary for the club, said: "I believe that's the first hole-in-one we've had at the club this year, though I can't be sure, because we sometimes don't hear about all of them.

"Oliver's been playing at the club since he was nine or 10 years old and he's now on a 15 handicap, so he's not doing too badly.

"I think young lads like Oliver doing well will inspire other junior members at the club.
