A GOLF professional has achieved the rarest of feats.

Lee Harpin, the PGA professional at Rhos on Sea Golf Club, recently tore up the course at Holyhead Golf Club.

Playing in the North Wales Professional Golfers Alliance, he completed an unbelievable round of 59.

That was 12-under-par at the venue and his bogey-free once-in-a-lifetime round contained four eagles and a quartet of birdies.

He smashed the previous course record by five shots.

This was a round of 64 in 1999 by former European Tour player Roger Chapman.

Lee said: "I knew I was 12 under and had a great card in my hand, but I wasn’t aware I’d shot 59 until I finished the last hole.

"I’ve had so many phone calls, emails, text messages and messages on social media from people congratulating me and saying that it’s unbelievable!

"I don’t know anyone who’s shot a 59 - it’s been done once on the European Tour and a few times on the PGA Tour.

"I’m made up. I don’t think I’ll ever do that again, but you never know!

"It’s unique. It’s a rare club."
