Graham Goodman made history at Saffron Walden Golf club last Tuesday as he scored a hole in one.

Goodman, a one handicap golfer, achieved the feat on the par four fourth hole at Walden, measuring 362 yards.

In 2004 Olly Tuck managed a hole in one on the second hole at 348 yards, but it is the first time in the history of the club that there has been a hole in one on the fourth.

On Tuesday with a left to right wind and the tee position to the left, the shot to the green was a real possibility.

Goodman's partner Mick Bush hit a rescue club to within 20 yards of the green and Goodman hit a five wood with a fade over the trees to land short of the green and run into the hole.

Both players spent a good time looking for Goodman's ball, until much to their amazement, they saw it in the hole.

Goodman said: "It was truly an unbelievable shot as normally I play the hole with a four iron and then a eight iron into the green. Because it was a friendly wind, Mick I decided to go for the green and it went in! It was a million to one shot!
