How about this for a lucky hole-in-one on a par-4?

Richard Green should really play the lottery this evening.

RICHARD GREEN TODAY scored a hole-in-one on the par-4 15th at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links during the pro-am for the Oates Vic Open in Australia.

Green, who has three European Tour wins under his belt, has never managed an albatross before and probably didn’t think he’d be recording one after his tee-shot on the 15th hole headed towards the bunker.

However, the 43-year old’s ball took an unbelievable bounce and ended up in the hole.

Green told the on-course reporter:

“I thought I would hit a driver and see what happens, I just pushed it a little bit, it was a good shot, but I knew it was going in the bunker so I was completely oblivious to the fact that it had made its way to the hole somehow.

“I haven’t had anything like that happen before, I have had hole in ones during tournaments but they have been shots that have landed by the hole and found their way in.”
