The 11th was even captured by local TV news cameras when he was interviewed about his incredible feat.

Neil, who usually plays twice a week off a 2.5 handicap, said: “It’s unbelievable.

“The shock of when you do it the first couple of times is immense.

“As it goes on, people just kept asking — have you got one today?

“And the answer was often yes. It got a bit embarrassing.”

Neil, of Bristol, who runs a social club with wife Sam, hit all his holes-in-one on two courses at Tracey Park Golf Club in Wick, Gloucestershire.

For the first two, Neil honoured the tradition of buying drinks for every golfer on the course  —  but now dashes off.

He said: “The first two holes were very costly for me.”

The world record is 51, held by retired Texan pro Mancil Davis.
