SIMON BOOKER, from Woodcote, celebrated his 50th birthday with a golf day at Springs Golf Club, near Wallingford.
But it was his 20-year-old nephew Josh who received the best present ? a hole in one.
Josh, who has hardly played a round in the last year, was partnering his cousins, Tom, 22, and Will, 13, when he got lucky at the 185-yard 16th hole.
No one was more stunned than Josh?s father Dave, who has had a single figure handicap for more than 40 years but has never achieved a hole in one.
To add to his hurt, he couldn?t play that day because of an injury, so had to make do with videoing the action.
Simon says Josh?s reaction was a treat ? as was Dave?s when he realised he would have to foot the bill for clubhouse drinks for his student son!
He adds that this was the seventh ace to be achieved by members of his family ? including three by himself!
