You could not do any better on a pressure hole to stay in the running of your local club tournament as Tasi Sua discovered with his Hole-in-One on the Par 3 second hole at the Wanganui Golf Club on Sunday.

The club was hosting their annual BNZ Men's Ladder Challenge Final, which is a knockout competition played over 18 holes at the Belmont Links.

Club golf manager Dale Cobb said Sua had previously escaped "certain elimination" on the previous hold to just stay in the tournament.

"To his credit he calmly approached the second hole with a magnificent tee shot that never looked like missing the cup.


"[It was] witnessed and acknowledged to the roar and acceptance of 19 club members.

"Makes for an extremely expensive 'Hole In One', congratulations to Tasi on a grand effort."

It would have been Sua's shout back at the clubrooms' bar.

This was the seventh recorded ace in the wider Whanganui region in 2016, and the third at the Wanganui Golf Club.

The Challenge Final came down to the last green between Peter Cox and Perry Schilerike, with Cox taking the title by a single putt.
