Saltman gets second ace at Wales Open

NEWPORT, Wales – A golfer who recently completed a three-month ban from the European Tour for marking his ball incorrectly has hit his second hole-in-one at the Wales Open.

Elliot Saltman aced No. 17 in the opening round on Thursday at Celtic Manor. The Scot repeated the feat at the same hole in the final round on Sunday.

Saltman was disqualified after both of his playing partners questioned how he replaced his ball in the first round of the Russian Challenge Cup last September. He made his return at the Spanish Open last month.
