The number 13 is unlucky for some, but John Dixon bunked the trend after hitting a hole-in-one at Horncastle Golf Club.

John hit his shot on the 178-yard 13th hole.

He also had another stroke of good fortune as he returned to the club house.

Tradition states that a person who shoots a hole-in-one has to buy a drink for all the players at the club on that day.

John got away lightly as there were only four people in the club house that afternoon.
