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

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.”
