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.

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