The 11th was even captured by local TV news cameras when he was interviewed about his incredible feat.

Neil, who usually plays twice a week off a 2.5 handicap, said: “It’s unbelievable.

“The shock of when you do it the first couple of times is immense.

“As it goes on, people just kept asking — have you got one today?

“And the answer was often yes. It got a bit embarrassing.”

Neil, of Bristol, who runs a social club with wife Sam, hit all his holes-in-one on two courses at Tracey Park Golf Club in Wick, Gloucestershire.
