It was a disbelieving Gill Mannia who saw her accurate six-iron go unerringly into the hole on the 6th hole at Didsbury for the second ace of her career.
Gill, handicap 32, was playing with her husband Bob in the Didsbury Winter Mixed League against Ged Ford and Julia Chruzcz, and the ace came on the 100-yard temporary green. Gill was delighted to treat all of her fellow Didsbury lady members to tea on ladies day two days later.
Gill said: “I could not believe it when my ball went into the hole, and it is ten years since I had my first one at Styal, on their 15th hole. They say that good things come in threes, but I hope that it is not another ten years before I complete my hat-trick of aces!”
