ACE 70TH FOR TONY

Tony Feldberg celebrates 70th birthday with a hole-in-one

By James Dobbin

Mablethorpe golfer Tony Feldberg has plenty to smile about after achieving a hole-in-one on the day of his 70th birthday. 

What is more, he received the perfect present in the shape of a limited-edition timepiece as recognition for the achievement.

Feldberg scored his ace on the 162-yard, par-three 14th at Seacroft GC, and the 11-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

He said: “It was a little windy, coming from my right side, and I chose my six-iron, aiming it at the bunker on the right. 

“The ball flew towards the bunker but then started to draw about five yards left. It pitched on the green and rolled towards the flag. My only thought was: ‘it’s getting closer to the hole … ’.

“It was my birthday and I was playing with the club captain – it doesn’t get much better than that.”
