Think you play a pretty good game of golf?

Third hole-in-one

A Suffolk [UK] golfer, David Huggins, has just hit his third hole-in-one while playing in a junior tournament. Remarkable but even more so when you realize he is just eight years old…and hit his first hole-in-one at age four.

His dad celebrated by buying sodas for all the other junior competitors in the tournament.

P.S. Tiger Woods got his first hole in one at age six.

Items on sale include a 1.2 ton landing gear, a Mach-monitoring speedometer and a windshield.

And a toilet
