A golfer walked away with a wheelbarrow filled full of fifty pound notes yesterday after scoring a hole in one during a "Beat The Pro" challenge at a golf tournament.

Chris Wray was playing for England versus Ireland in the annual Druh Cup at The Heritage Golf Club when he hit the lucky shot in a "Beat The Pro" challenge on the 145 yard 15th hole against Tour professional Kelly Tidy.

Having counted the cash Wray would not reveal the total in the wheelbarrow but indicated there was enough in there to clear his mortgage.

Druh Belts CEO Simon Hurd who sponsored the cash hole-in-one prize (and didn't insure against it because that's how he rolls) could not be contacted for comment immediately after but was last heard making a high pitched crying noise in a locked toilet cubicle at the venue.

Mathematicians said after they hadn't a calculator big enough to work out the odds of a hole in one, in a beat the pro challenge, whilst trying to maintain focus as a lady listed as "One of the most beautiful Tour players on the planet" stares you down.

The ace was not enough however to prevent Ireland winning the Druh Cup on a scoreline of 14.5 to 9.5 after the days matches.

Ireland Captain yours truly had the honour of accepting the trophy on behalf of the Irish team while Olympic javelin legend Mick Hill captained Team England.
