Rare ace at Alliance competition

HOLES in one are very rare and much celebrated happenings in golf and the Manchester Alliance officials were scouring their records for the last time an ace was achieved in their competitions after one came in the Team of Four competition at Whitefield.

It came on the 185-yard 11th par three from Simon Daniels who was part of the team led by Bury Golf Club professional Chris Bibby.

Simon is a scratch golfer and used his trusty five iron from the tee.
The shot landed a foot from the pin and then dropped into the hole for a noisy ace which also contributed valuable points to the team score enabling them to take second spot in an event with 35 teams in attendance and then celebrate in the normal fashion back at their club.
