EXPERIENCED SWING: Pakuranga Golf Club’s oldest playing member Alf Hogg is an expert with numbers, but didn’t need to count past one on the sixth hole during a round last month. Mr Hogg signed off as men’s section committee treasurer with a hole-in-one, a feat he also achieved two years ago. The 90-year-old hit the ace on the 102-metre sixth using a metal utility club. Mr Hogg has been a member at Pakuranga for more than 25 years and his treasurer role involved looking after the books for the midweek players, who do fundraising to improve the course and club.
