For Nelson Golf Club junior, Joe Flannagan last week’s April medal was a day he will never forget.

On his way to a round of 73-6-67, the Clitheroe Grammar School pupil, 15, selected a seven iron to attack the 168 yard par three 11th.

“ I drew the ball and saw it bounce 10ft from the flag, and was amazed to see it run nicely into the hole. I never thought it would happen to me.”

Joe now plays off five.
