Golfer Michael Applin will shoot for a £1million hole-in-one after becoming the one millionth customer at the TopGolf game centre and target range in Chigwell, Essex.

Michael, 39, an IT manager, of Theydon Bois, Essex, said: “I was really surprised when TopGolf told me I was their millionth visitor.

“But I was absolutely stunned when they said I am getting the chance to shoot for a £1million hole-in-one!

“This is the first time I have won anything – apart from £10 on the Lottery.

“I’m going to be working on my swing every night from now on!”

Married dad-of-two Michael also receives free TopGolf for a year, an iPod Touch and £50 worth of iTunes vouchers.

TopGolf Operations Director James Jenkins said: “We are all very excited about the £1million shootout.

“We wanted to celebrate having one million visitors in a big way. We really hope Michael hits the jackpot!”

Michael will be going for the jackpot on October 28 at TopGolf, Chigwell.
