English Golfer Makes Two Holes-In-One in Three Months

To all our blog readers we ask, “Have you got a hole in one yet?!” Well an Englishman has made two in the last three months. A British newspaper by the name of The Southport Visiter reported that Adrian Butler of Birkdale has more reason for celebration than most this season. He has had not just his first hole-in-one but two – and within three months. The article then points out that Butler, who admits he is not an excitable kind of person, says modestly: “I think to get two inside three months is probably very rare”.

“One person has suggested I do try some golf magazine to see if I can get some information about it. But then that is not really my kind of scene,” he says. Next we learn from the article that he is from Litherland, aged 51, and keen on health and fitness. He used to play football in leagues in Liverpool and Southport and goes to the gym, cycles and this year he joined Southport Fell Walking Club.

The article goes on to say that Butler started golf 30 years ago. “It’s a sport you love or loath,” he says in the article. The Southport Visiter believes that he obviously developed a love of the game, beginning from the time he hit his first golf balls, like so many beginners, at the municipals. Now he plays off an 18 handicap.

The Southport Visiter states that his first hole-in-one came in May, at the 12th in a singles matchplay knockout competition. Butler recalls: “It was a very windy evening and the hole was about 190 yards into the wind.
All of us at US Hole In One would like to congratulate Mr. Butler on his fantastic feat. Before we go, don’t forget to call US Hole In One at 888 882 5440 for affordable hole in one insurance. Have a good day!
