A sweetly hit six-iron provided Hugh Delahunty with a jolt of excitement earlier this week.
Delahunty overcame a ferocious wind and the Horsham Golf Club's fearsome 'Sahara' desert to secure a hole in one on Monday - the second of his career.
Delahunty said he did not realise his achievement while standing on the 8th tee.
"It was about 136 metres from the tee. There was a pretty strong crosswind, so I aimed a bit left, used a six iron, and hit it sweet as a pea," Delahunty said.
"It landed just short of the bunker on the left-hand side, bounced on and rolled up close to it.
"I didn't actually see it go in.
"I thought it would be a good shot, but it was actually Lorraine Melville who said, 'I think that's gone in.'"
Delahunty said his only other hole in one also came on the 8th hole "four or five" years ago.
His latest achievement may have been a case of practice paying off.
Delahunty said he had been playing golf more frequently as it was one of the few pastimes still allowed during stage-three COVID restrictions.
"I got up there and it was in the hole. It certainly was a bit of excitement during this COVID period," Delahunty said.
