He said: “I hadn’t swung a club in lockdown. I was just relieved the ball went in the air.
“I saw it in the cup and spent the rest of the round laughing. I couldn’t believe it happened."
Ed, 34, an 18-handicapper from Berkhamsted, Herts, has been staying with his in-laws and was playing at Styal, Cheshire.
Meanwhile, Tony Clement aced the 132-yard, par-three fifth — 27 minutes after starting his round at Farrington Park near Bristol on Wednesday.
Thrilled Tony, 71, said: “We were just happy to be back on the course after such a long lay-off.
“I didn’t have much expectation having not played for so long so you could imagine my shock and surprise when my 7-iron shot went in the hole.
“The best thing is that with all the restrictions I didn’t have to buy anyone a drink because the club house isn’t open – so not only was it memorable it was also very cheap.
“I’ll just crack open a bottle of wine when I get home and toast my success on my own.”
