BOING-TASTIC! Owin Wong won a Christmas competition with a difference run by Torbay Golf Centre.

From late November onwards golfers were invited to hit 10 range balls at a trampoline target 85 yards away.

Each hit on the trampoline earned the golfer another go in the final.

"From day one the competition went from strength to strength with everyone practicing shots at the trampoline, creating a competitive edge and excitement," said pro Neil Holman.

Forty-three golfers made it to the final, where each had three shots at the trampoline.

Three made it into the last round – 10 year old Wong, Simon Mansfield and Steve Northam – where they were given five balls each.

Wong stepped up first and landed the second ball in the centre of the trampoline to put the pressure on.

Masnfield and Northam hit five good shots, narrowly missing the trampoline, which meant the youngest competitor of them all won the equipment prize.

The prize-giving took place in the shop and all was not lost for the runners-up as they both received their prizes from Holman.
