Frank, who turned 89 in April, had 88 strokes in the competition last Saturday.

When questioned however, Frank revealed that this was the fifth time he has done it, previously achieving the feat at age 80, 82, 83 and 88.

Frank said he almost did it at age 75 as well, when he missed the 3 final putt.

This time he needed a 5 on par 5 18th hole, and he confidently rolled in the putt.

Frank still plays off a very competitive handicap of 20, and he reckons he still has a lot of good rounds in him.
