Luffenham Heath golfer Tom Hubbard is celebrating after landing his first hole-in-one.

Tom has been playing golf for as long as he can remember and has been a member at the club for eight years.

The seven handicapper hit the hole-in-one on the par three fifth hole and said he thought it was close and when he couldn’t see it on the green, knew it had gone in.

He says he is delighted as many players never get a hole-in-one and he has at the age of 21.

Tom, of Bramble Close, Uppingham, is familiar with the number one as he also plays in goal for Uppingham Town Football Club.

His older brother Jack, 23, also plays at Luffenham and he too has enjoyed a bit of success, winning the Sir Anthony Wharton trophy on Sunday at the club, cutting his handicap from seven to six.

Jack said he was delighted to win and will be presented the trophy by rugby union legend Sir Clive Woodward in November at the club.
