Frenchman David Ravetto has already booked his trip back to South Africa with his girlfriend after winning a seven-night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Umhlanga Arch thanks to his hole-in-one on the par-three 12th hole at Durban Country Club during the first round of the Jonsson Workwear Open on Thursday.
Ravetto aced the famous 135-metre par three with a nine iron, claiming the Hilton prize on this hole on day one and prompting the sponsor to proudly produce another sponsorship board for the remainder of the tournament declaring, “Hole-in-Done! Congrats David!”.
“It was a perfect shot, just tracking all the way, and it took one bounce and went in. It was awesome,” said Ravetto.
“I had just taken a look at the board before I hit the shot and thought, ‘Well, that could be quite a nice prize’. Then I hit the perfect shot and thought, ‘Ok, it’s mine now’. Obviously I’ll be coming back now to have a little vacation, which will be awesome.”
