Blind man’s hole in one

A BLIND elderly man in the US has achieved a dream of a lifetime by sinking a hole in one at a golf course in Florida.

To the surprise of his golfing partners, 92-year-old Leo Fiyalko used a five-iron to sink his 110-yard shot at the fifth hole of Cove Cay Country Club.

He has been playing for 60 years but this was his first hole-in-one.

“I was just trying to put the ball on the green,” Mr Fiyalko said, who once had a seven handicap.

Now he needs help lining up shots and finding his golf balls. One of his friends said: “I could tell it went on the green but when we got up there I didn’t see it. I looked in the hole and there it was.”

Mr Fiyalko’s friends at the country club later presented him with a plaque to commemorate his feat.

The photo shows a thought bubble coming from Ms Bruni, saying: “With Ryanair, all my family can attend my wedding.” She is seeking half a million euros in compensation. The airline has apologised for using the image without their consent but insists it meant no offence.
