Five-year-old Matthew Draper shot himself into the record books yesterday by becoming the youngest golfer in Britain to hit a hole-in- one. Matthew's father, Philip Draper, 35, and other players watched in amazement as his ball sailed down the fairway of the fourth hole at Cherwell Edge miniature golf course, at Banbury, before rolling straight into the hole. Mr Draper said: "I knew he had hit it well but I never thought it would go all the way."

Matthew, whose hero is Nick Faldo, said: "It was good. I put my arms out and went `Yeah'."
