David Huggins, nine, of Romney Road, Ipswich, is basking in the national spotlight after appearing on BBC1's programme, The One Show.

David appeared on the evening chat show yesterday after scoring his third hole-in-one, an achievement many golfers wait a lifetime for.

Appearing alongside international golfing hero Seve Ballesteros, David showed off his skills to the nation.
