Dylan James Thomas
Yet again Pontardawe youngster Dylan Thomas stamps his authority on the golf course, with a hole in one on the difficult 150 yard, par 3, second hole.
 
What's even more remarkable is Dylan, at only eleven years of age, was playing off the white tees in an the full adult August stableford competition.

Dylan's outstanding form continued throughout the round with him posting a gross score of 72 playing off a handicap of 10, that's 8 shots under his handicap, that's quite an achievement for such a young golfer.

One of his playing partners quoted
 
" For a golfer of such tender years Dylan showed a tremendous array of perfect shots in very windy conditions, and always seemed to hit the ball to the right positions on the golf course to attack the pins"

The traditional hole in one bottle whiskey was placed on the bar for all members to celebrate Dylan's hole in one, although Dylan had to make do with a glass of coke.
 
Well done Dylan a superb round of golf,  with a hole in one thrown in for good measure.
