A YOUNG Bradford golfer has produced a stunning performance in a practice round at Shipley Golf Club, with not one but TWO hole-in-ones over just eight holes.

Matty Morrison, 20, went out on to the course with club professional Nathan Stead last Tuesday for a swing, but admitted that he had no intention of picking up his clubs that day until Stead persuaded him.

Fortunately he did, and whatever happens during the rest of his golfing career, he will find the events of that day hard to top.

Morrison said: "We weren't even going to play but Nathan said why don't we just jump on? And on my first swing I got a hole-in-one.

"Then I went straight out two holes later and hit another one. I made a few bogies unfortunately (and three birdies) but I can't complain.

"My old man actually texted me straight after and asked how the hell I'd bogeyed the Par Five.

"I can't imagine it's happened too many times before so I suppose it's a bit of an achievement to get two holes in one in a single round.

"I went out the next day and played in the Midweek Medal at Shipley and shot 68 with three birdies and 15 pars so it's nice to be coming into form towards the end of the season."

Asked about his golfing story, Morrison said: "My dad used to play and he got me into it when I was about 12, so I've been playing for about eight years now.

"I've had a few years of practice but I don't think Nathan will be too worried about me trying to take his place as club professional. I definitely want to just keep it as a hobby.

Morrison is not just restricted to playing in Bradford and West Yorkshire either, with him getting plenty of practice on courses further up north.

He said: "I play at Northumbria University and our team won the First Division of the Northern BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) League last year so it's going well up there."

Morrison's full "double hole-in-one" scorecard: Hole 11: Par 3 -1, 12: Par 4 -5, 13: Par 3 -1, 14: Par 4 -3, 15: Par 5 -6, 16: Par 4 -3, 17: Par 3 -2, 18: Par 4 -4
