History on the 16th Hole
However perhaps the most notable feat occurred in the Eastern Counties Foursomes in 1974. Bob Taylor, a Leicestershire County player, holed in one on three successive days at the 189 yard par three 16th hole. You can see Bob being interviewed by Bernard Gallagher about his never to be repeated achievement here.
