On one leg, fighting cancer, with poor vision, 70-year-old hits ace

This may be the best hole in one story ever!
A ONE-LEGGED pensioner who has cancer and poor eyesight hit a hole-in-one at St Andrews.

Joe McLaughlin, 70, aced the par-three fifth on the Jubilee course as he played with pal Dennis Leckie.

Joe, who is only able to play thanks to a prosthetic limb specially designed for golf, said: "I used a seven iron and kept looking after I'd hit the shot. The ball just disappeared. I'd been playing rubbish to that point.
So let me get this right. Joe only has one leg, he can't see well, he has cancer and he still managed to ace the fifth hole on the Jubilee Course at St. Andrews? He should be an inspiration to every golfer out there who's yet to record an ace of their own!

His reaction to the ace is more than awesome.
"I parked up in my buggy and told Dennis to go and fetch the ball out of the hole."
I'm at a loss for words! Somebody please find this gent across the pond and buy him a drink for me!
