Most golfers dream of getting a hole-in-one once in a lifetime. What do they think of this young boy?
New Zealand teen hits hole-in-one twice in same round
Wellington – New Zealander Thomas Monnery, 15, shot a hole-in-one twice in the same round at his local golf club – a 67 million to one chance, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
Playing at the Pukekohe club near Auckland on Sunday with his father and a family friend he achieved the feat with a 6-iron on the 157-metre par 3 fourth hole and again on the 192-metre par 3 14th with a 3-iron, the New Zealand Herald reported.
It quoted Associate Professor David Scott, of Auckland University's department of statistics, as saying a Golf Digest study put the odds of a player making two holes-in-one in the same round at about 67 million to one. The chance of a single hole-in-one is about 1 in 12,000.
The boy's father, Paul, 42, also scored a hole-in-one on the fourth hole two years ago.
