George White holes in one at the age of 11

First published in Sport by

GEORGE White is still celebrating after hitting a superb hole in one at the tender age of 11.

The ace came on the 178yd par 3 at Llanwern Golf Club. Unfortunately it was while practising with his dad Paul and not a competition, so he didn't win anything for it. He hit a very straight rescue club that looked nowhere else but in the hole.

He has since been made a fuss of by all the members and has even had a tweet from Luke Donald saying 'congrats little man'.

George has only been playing as a member since April, but the ace and the tweet have inspired him to play more this summer and on the Sunday after the hole in one he came second in the club's Presidents' Day competition.

He now practises at the club every day.
