Subject: Golf family's holey trinity

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/11/07 at 7:08 am

A golf-mad family scored a hat-trick of holes-in-one in three days - beating odds of 15 million-to-one.

Mum Gill Mackenzie, 45, who has a 27 handicap, got the ball rolling with a perfect 116-yard pitch that flew straight into the 9th.

Just 24 hours later husband Ray aced a 115-yard tee shot on the 11th green.

Then son Sam, 14, who shares a 16 handicap with his dad, repeated the feat at the 11th hole of the Llanfairfechan Golf Club near the family's home in North Wales.

A spokesman for William Hill said the odds of such a hat-trick were "between 10 and 15 million to one".

Ray, 47, who took up golf three years ago, said: "The tremendous thing is that Sam had bought a pack of balls for Fathers' Day and we both got the holes-in-one with balls from the pack."

Last year Dafydd Owen scored two holes-in-one in one round at the course.
