Congratulations on Scoring an Albatross

Congratulations to John Stewart on scoring a fantastic albatross on the par five, fifth hole on Saturday last. John played a perfect drive to the middle of the fairway and followed it up with a full 3 wood, which he thought he had overhit when he got to the green as there was no sign of his ball. As John was searching the rough at the back of the green, his playing partner, John Howley, checked the hole and discovered the ball sitting there. John Howley whipped out his phone and recorded the moment the ball was retrieved from the hole.

Thank You
