Hot shot Connor Reeves
WHEN Connor Reeves was 10 and playing off a handicap of 19, he said he was determined to give playing golf his best shot.
There is no doubt the young member of the Hervey Bay Golf Club is keeping to his word.
Three year later, Reeves now has a handicap of three and is teeing up a promising future in the game he loves with such a passion.
He's already won a national title after helping Queensland be crowned the under-12 team champions in the Australian School Sport National Golf Championships a couple of years ago.
But this year, the Xavier Catholic College student has also proven to be extremely hot on the fairways and greens of his home club.
He won the Junior Club Championship by 17 shots, finished second in the men's A-Grade Club Championship and he teamed-up with club champion, Aaron Bolger, to win the Foursomes Championships.
Now Reeves has done something plenty of golfers can only dream about – he's got a hole-in-one.
Reeves, whose best round at his home club was an impressive two-under par 68 he carded last month, got his ace on the par three 17th.
Unfortunately for him, he didn't see it go in the hole.
“I knew I had hit a good shot and it was straight at the pin,” Reeves, who won the Bargara Junior Classic in April, said.
“I just didn't know how good the shot had been until I got to the green.
“We just couldn't see the ball anywhere on the green so I had a look in the hole and there it was.
“I was very excited.”
