I wonder what the odds are of this happening. From AP-
With two swings, Brendon Todd made Nationwide Tour history.
After posting a hole-in-one on the 147-yard 17th hole at the Athens Regional Foundation Classic on Thursday, Todd repeated the feat in Friday’s second round, as well.
“It’s just pure disbelief,” Todd said. “It was a stroke of good luck, twice in a row. I guess it’s like catching lightning in a bottle.”
Lightning which struck twice, of course. In the opening round, Todd used a 7-iron when the hole was playing 10 yards longer than its distance on the scorecard.
“That one landed about 3 feet short,” he recalled, “and rolled straight up the hill like a putt.”
On Friday, he used an 8-iron, which brought the same end result.
The last time a player made two holes in one in the same PGA Tour sanctioned event, was Graham Marsh at the 2004 Senior British Open. I remember four players acing the same hole in the same round at a US Open(89?) about twenty years ago.
Todd did this in Athens Georgia. He played golf there for the University of Georgia.
