Dereham junior George Bedwell shot his first hole in one at Dereham Golf Club during the weekly Junior Monday Club.

George, 12, who has been a member for just over a year, took a six iron on the 17th, a 159 yard par three. He said "I just can't believe it went in, even though I saw it go in I just can't believe it's happened."

George is hoping to get his CONGU handicap before the end of this season.

Dereham's Andrew Marshall failed to make an impact on the final two days of the SK Challenge in Finland as he finished in a tie for 52nd position.

The mid-Norfolk professional recorded rounds of 70 and 74 for a two over par finish, 13 shots adrift of winner Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium, who won the title in a play-off. Marshall is now 48th in the Challenge Tour Order of Merit, with 16,476 Euros (just over £14,000) to his name.
