Ten-year-old stars with hole-in-one
Young Noah Azan set the Sandals Golf and Country Club alight last weekend with a hole-in-one on the par three eleventh hole.
Ten-year-old Azan went on to place second in the Under-11 age group.
"It's an incredible achieve-ment to get a hole-in-one in general. Most players go their entire lives without getting one, so this speaks volumes to Noah's ability and dedication to the game as a 10-year-old," his coach, Jason Lopez, said.
