A 14-YEAR-OLD boy hit a hole in one just hours after receiving a new set of golf clubs as a Christmas present.

Isaak Playford of Columbine Road, Ely, hit the ace at the 129-yard second hole at City of Ely Golf Club on Christmas morning, shortly after receiving the new clubs as a present from his parents.

He took a utility wood off the tee at the par three second, a tricky hole over water, and with one swing the ball was in the cup.

He went on to complete nine holes in 46 shots.

Isaak, who attends City of Ely Community College, appears undaunted by a sport which can take many a lifetime to master.

Despite having played the game for only three months, he is already a member of the club's junior section, and is improving with every round.

Grandfather Eric said: "He was over the moon at the hole-in-one. It was the best Christmas present he could have had."
