GUILDFORD GOLFER, 74, DEALS THREE ACES AT MILFORD
Mokhtari has now achieved three holes-in-one on the same hole
By James Dobbin
Many of us will never achieve golf’s Holy Grail of a hole-in-one but Parviz Mokhtari has now completed his hat-trick … on the same hole.
And, as he scored his most recent ace during a club competition, he was rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch for the achievement.
Mokhtari, 74, scored his third hole-in-one in the same manner as his former two, on the 94-yard, par-three 17th at Milford GC, and the 27-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
He said: “I was having a very average round as the course was pretty wet. On the 17th I thought, ‘if I get a two here, I’ll win a sleeve of balls.’ I took my shot and it looked good, then my playing partners shouted that it was in the hole. By the time I looked up, it was.
“This hole-in-one was extra special as it was in an official club competition. The others were in friendlies back in 2002 and 2004. After such a long gap, I was sure the well had dried up!”
