11-year-old golfer cards albatross, eagle, ace & four birdies in round

An 11-year-old girl made an albatross, two eagles including a hole-in-one and four birdies during a 7-under 65 at the US Kids Golf South American Championship

Brazil's Gabriela Hitoshi started her round on the 10th hole and birdied the par-5 12th (290 yards) and par-4 13th (200 yards) before making a bogey at the par-4 14th (225 yards).

She then exchanged a birdie at the par-4 16th (210 yards) with a bogey at the par-5 18th (337 yards) to go out in 1-under par. 

A bogey at the par-4 first (200 yards) sent her back to level par for the round, but that's when things really started to motor for Hitoshi.

She birdied the par-5 third (320 yards) to get back to 1-under and then aced the par-3 fifth from 90 yards out. 

A bogey followed at the par-3 sixth, also from 90 yards, but then Hitoshi did the unthinkable again when holing her second shot to the par-5 seventh measuring 290 yards. 

Surely it couldn't happen again at the eighth? But it did. 

Hitoshi holed her second shot to the par-4 eighth measuring 190 yards and she parred her final hole to return in 30 strokes and a round of 7-under 65. 

Check out the full scorecard below...



The par-72 course at Itanhanga Golf Club in Rio de Janeiro measured 3,652 yards - so half the typical yardage of a normal Tour golf course - but still, it's not a bad feat for an 11-year-old!

Hitoshi went on to finish third in her age group over the three-round tournament, finishing five strokes behind winner Almendra Campoverde of Peru.
