With almost four decades of golfing experience under his belt, and a 25-year membership at Royal Winchester, Wyatt’s prowess on the course was well-established. All six of his holes-in-one had occurred at this prestigious club.

Reflecting on his previous aces, Wyatt reminisced, “The first ace came on the 11th hole in March 2002…

My third was in June 2008 on the 3rd, and my previous ace before Monday was actually in April 2011 on the 17th, funnily enough in the same competition as the one I achieved my pair of aces on Monday!”
