New Zealand Primary School Golfer World First To Get Hole In One - Twice.
Jack Green, a primary student at Pinehurst School recently achieved his second hole in one at Takapuna Golf Club, making him the youngest golfer in the world to achieve two holes in one, an achievement rarely heard of within the golfing community, let alone from an eight year old.
Green, who moved to Pinehurst School in recent years because of its reputable golf programme, was also one of four team members to win the North Harbour Primary Schools Nine Hole Championship earlier this year.
An incredible achievement for any player, Green is both an inspiration to his peers and golf goers who have watched the primary school student grow from strength to strength.
Head of Primary and Junior College for Pinehurst, Mr Glen Radojkovich who also heads up the excelling golf programme, is extraordinarily proud of the schools world class results and puts it down to extremely dedicated staff, parents and students who pull together to ensure great things happen.
"I’m extremely proud of Pinehurst’s Golf Programme and our students’ outstanding results. It’s easy for our students to achieve world class results when you have a strong network of supportive parents, teachers and coaches who want to see students be the best at what they do," says Radojkovich.
Aptly named, you’d be forgiven for relating Pinehurst School, based in Albany on Auckland’s North Shore, to the renowned Pinehurst golf Club in the States where New Zealander Michael Campbell won the U.S. Open Championship in 2005.
"I look forward to seeing Jack’s name alongside international greats like Michael Campbell."
