SKILL or luck? A fluke or superb playing ability?

Whatever you believe, a Stevenage female golfer is toasting two holes-in-one on the same hole inside seven days.

Sue Elwin was playing on the ladies' day at Knebworth Golf Club when she aced the par three, 99-yard eighth hole.

If this was not remarkable enough, the next time she picked up her clubs was on the following Wednesday.

And to her astonishment, she achieved a hole-in-one on the exact same hole - but with a different pin position - using the same seven iron and the same ball!

It is the first time the 58-year-old, who has been playing for 25 years, has achieved a hole-in-one.

The 20-handicapper is also the secretary at Stevenage Golf Club.

She said: "I don't know whether to get a hole-in-one is skill or luck. The odds must be high to do it in successive weeks.

"People have said the odds of doing this are higher than winning the Lottery!
