SECOND ACE THIS YEAR PROVES DAVID'S GETTING BETTER WITH AGE

By James Dobbin

Cardiff golfer David Lewis’ golf game is ageing like fine wine after the 70-year-old amateur managed to ace the same hole for the second time this year.

And while they say lightning never strikes the same place twice, Lewis proved otherwise, earning himself a limited-edition BOSS watch for his most recent effort.

The retired architect, who plays off 10, scored both aces on the 198-yard, par-three 15th at his home club, Wenvoe Castle.

He said: “Strangely, on each occasion the group behind my group was a four ball, which included the club president and two former captains – very illustrious company. 

“My first hole-in-one was during a friendly game earlier this year, but it was also a bit special because I managed to complete all three of the par-threes at Wenvoe Castle in a total of five shots – two birdies and a hole-in-one.

“Before this year, after playing golf about 45 years, I’d only ever achieved one other hole-in-one, which was more than eight years ago – it seems I’m getting luckier.

“A hole-in-one is mostly down to luck anyway, no doubt about it – 95 per cent luck and five per cent skill.”
