Yorkshire golf: Three Ryder Cup venues, two aces, one leader

THE three-round trilateral Lexus Yorkshire Challenge, being staged at three Ryder Cup courses in Moortown, Ganton and Lindrick, produced two holes in one on day two.

Bondhay's Graham Rye, who had a hole in one, with Lexus Yorkshire Challenge playing partner Noel Jarvis, of Hollinwell.

Unfortunately for the golfers involved neither came at the designated hole that would have put a Lexus at their disposal for a year.

Consolation for missing out on the car came in the form of a £750 prize for each of them.
