A JUNIOR member at a Chester golf club has bagged a hole-in-one - and she is only 10 years old!
Poppy Finlay, a member of Vicars Cross GC, scored the ace on her home club's eighth hole during a Junior Medal using her five rescue-wood.
The youngster did not see her ball disappear into the cup and was told by her watching dad, Craig.
Poppy's mum Shelley said: 'Craig was standing behind the green with the club's junior organiser, Bob Scott.
'When they realised it had gone in they were both jumping up and down and they shouted back up to the tee in excitement. Poppy couldn't believe it.'
The 31-handicapper started playing golf 19 months ago when her dad introduced her to the game when the family lived in Spain.
'Poppy wanted to have a try too and it has just escalated from there,' said Shelley.
Earlier this summer, the young hotshot won a qualifying heat for the HSBC Wee Wonders Championships at Wrexham before she narrowly missed qualifying for the Grand Final at St Andrews in Scotland by a solitary shot.
And despite her tender age, Poppy has already secured countless tournament wins in Spain as well as second place in both the Cheshire Girls Championship and the Paige Woods Telegraph competition held in June.
Shelley added: 'Poppy's playing golf every day and already has her heart set on turning professional when she is older.'
She is currently having a couple of lessons a week with her coach at Vicars Cross, Steven Priest.
He added: 'Poppy is doing very well. She has got the most ability of anyone I've seen at that age.
'It's great to see that the work is paying off and it's very pleasing.'
Shelley, from Great Sutton, continued: 'Her friends are amazed by her golf. They are always asking how she is getting on and they wish her luck for all her events.
'I'm so proud and ecstatic for her. The hole-in-one is such an amazing achievement for a 10-year-old.'
