Sir Bob Charles cards his 11th career ace, at age 82

On the eve of the New Zealand Open at The Hills in Arrowtown, Sir Bob Charles wound back the clock to grab the limelight after carding a hole-in-one.

As the 1963 Open champion, with 76 career professional victories Sir Bob Charles is often regarded as New Zealand’s greatest ever golfer and yesterday he made his 11th career ace at the ripe old age of 82.

Charles is still a great golfer and a hole-in-one probably shouldn’t be a surprise.

In fact Charles holds the record for carding the most-strokes-below-age record on a pro tour. Back in 2012, Charles shot a 66 during the European Senior Tour’s Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open, 10-strokes beater than his age at the time.
