Smith’s proving a real ace

Oliver Smith.JPGOLIVER Smith is making a habit out of holing in one. The 29-year-old Ashton on Mersey assistant scored his second ace in four months during the PGA Cheshire & North Wales Members’ Tour fixture at Bramall Park.

“I’ve had a few albatrosses since turning professional so I must be doing something right,” he quipped.

“My first ace was at Coxmoor’s tenth during the Galvin Green PGA Assistants’ Championship. My latest, at Bramall’s fourth, was quite impressive because my tee shot went over the pin then spun back straight into the hole. It never looked like going anywhere else!”

Smith, in his second year in the paid ranks, posted one-under-par 69, a stroke adrift of three players including Royal St David’s consistent Lee Rooke.

The sixth and final event in the series is at Knutsford on November 20.

LEADING SCORES: 68 Graham Roberts (Eaton), Shamus Martin (Aberdovey), Lee Rooke (Royal St David’s); 69 Oliver Smith (Ashton on Mersey); 70 Alex Evans (Bromborough); 71 Benjamin Stanier (Wilmslow), Rhodri Fieldhouse (American Golf); 72 Tim Maxwell (Knutsford).
