Ace Tim Malkin snaps up 10th hole-in-one on return to action at Bridlington Links Golf Club
On his first game back after lockdown, Bridlington Links Golf Club member Tim Malkin couldn’t have asked for a better start when he hit the perfect tee shot on the par three 16th.
His ball pitched 18 inches in front of the hole, bounced once, then disappeared down the cup for a hole in one.
Malkin’s playing partner on the day Matty Whitehead, said: “Some people go through their entire golfing life without achieving a hole-in-one, but for Tim this was nothing new as it was his 10th.
“Well done sir, fantastic shot.”
