One-Legged Cancer Sufferer Scores St. Andrews Ace!

The Daily Record with the inspiring (short) story of the one-legged "pensioner who has cancer and poor eyesight" named Joe McLaughlin.

The 70-year-old aced the Jubilee's par-three fifth.

Incredibly, it was Joe’s fifth hole-in-one in 60 years of playing. The former teacher, of Glenmavis, Airdrie, lost the lower half of his left leg in 2009 after developing a blood clot in his thigh.

He has daily chemotherapy after being diagnosed with skin and bone marrow cancer and has a cataract in his right eye.
