BRADD DILLON SINKS A PAIR OF ACES

AFTER a close encounter with Tiger, Rockhampton real estate agent Bradd Dillon landed a hole in one – his second ace in the past few months.

And he’s now $500 better off.

Bradd landed the hole in one at Rockhampton Golf Club’s par-three, eleventh hole during the Saturday men’s competition on November 29.

Apparently the odds of getting a hole in one for a PGA Tour pro are one in 3756 and for an amateur one in 12,750.

To get two, who knows?

Bradd landed his second ace on his first shot of the day.

The competition was played with a shotgun start.

“The ball landed on the front of the green and rolled in,” said Bradd, who plays off an 18 handicap.

“Lots of people saw it which was good.

“I’ve now got two in all and people who have been playing a lot longer than me say they haven’t got any.”

He said he’d recently studied the form of the world’s best golfers, including Tiger Woods, when they played in Melbourne last month.

“We went down and had a look at Tiger which was good,” Bradd said.

“It was a bit of a spin out, watching him and knowing that he’s worth so much.

“I also got to see a lot of the other guys and watch them play closely too.”

He landed his other hole in one, when he was playing a round with a friend on the same course, but on a different hole.

“I don’t think about it too much and just aim for the green,” he said.

Bradd said he’d use the $500 he won from Mark Bunt Menswear to help with suit hire for his wedding next year.

Mr Bunt said this was the second hole in one in three years at the hole he sponsored at the course.
