Newcastle-upon-Tyne, July 25: The European Tour resuming after more than four months away due to the coronavirus pandemic, got a major boost for its ‘Golf For Good’ initiative with a hole-in-one that fetched £50,000 for charity.

Englishman Jack Senior aced the 14th hole to win £50,000 for the Sir Graham Wylie Foundation. Betfred made the donation to the event’s Official Charity after Senior sank a seven iron from 176 yards.

Senior, who carded 63 on the third day, said, “I feel like I’ve played pretty solid all week. I obviously just caught fire today. When you do catch fire

things go your way and I managed to get a hole in one there at 14. Just played solid on the way in as  well.”

On the hole-in-one he added, “It was a funny one really. Me and my caddie were ‘umming’ and ‘ahhing’. The wind picked up into it a little bit and it was just a really good seven iron, the perfect number for me. Pitched about six inches short, one bounce past and it just swung back in there.”

Senior with rounds of 71-70-63 is nine-under and tied T-11.
