English golfer Eddie Pepperell has just scored a corking hole-in-one at the ninth at the Walton Heath course during the British masters today.
The popular player was standing over the 172-yard hole, selected a five iron and pinged the ball onto the green, it took a couple of bounces and spun straight in. Sensational scenes! He followed that up with a birdie at the tenth and an eagle at the eleventh - how’s that for form?
Sky Sports’ Tim Barter caught up with the 27-year-old shortly thereafter, when he was his usual good-humoured self.
“Well I thought it pitched in the hole, shot up, looked like it was going to the back of the green from where we were stood and then all of a sudden it disappeared,” he said.
“My eyesight’s going a little bit so I wasn’t sure what happened really Tim!”
Barter then asked him how he felt about winning £20,000 for charity.
“It’s awesome. I’d say I’d rather do that than win a car but that might be a lie. I’m kidding of course.”
The Oxford native, who plays on the European Tour, claimed the Qatar masters and managed a tied sixth at The Open.
