JOHN King, Cirencester Golf Club’s hole-in-one hotshot, has had his third ace in three months – at the age of 86.

John holed out at the par-three second hole on January 19 following up his two aces on the par-three 13th at the end of October.

On all three occasions he used a 25-degree utility wood.

While the increased bar bill is proving a worry for his wife Beryl, John is enjoying his new-found celebrity and has been even brrn interviewed by the national press.

It is believed that the odds of an amateur golfer having a hole in one in their lifetime – never mind four – are 50,000-1.

John joked: “People keep asking me to do their lottery tickets.

“I tell them I’ve got more chance of a hole-in-one than winning the lottery.”

John took up golf upon retirement in 2002 and has been playing at Cirencester since 2006 after moving to the area from Sevenoaks.

John added a middle A to his name in the club’s directory when he joined Cirencester to avoid confusion with another member of the same name.

Now we all know that the A stands for “Ace”.
