Two holes in one in successive shoots
And the odds of that? 17,000,000-1......
Two golfers have make hole-in-ones on the same hole in successive shots.
Jayne Mattey and Clair Shine were playing a round at East Berkshire Golf Club when Jayne stepped up and made a hole-in-one, at odds of roughly 12,500-1.
Her playing partner Clair then stepped up and also aced the hole. And the odds for two holes-in-one on the same hole, on the same day in successive shots? Well, that would be 17,000,000 to one!
East Berkshire GC Captain George Ennis told the BBC, “According to Google and the National Hole In One Registry, the odds of two amateur golfers getting aces on the same hole, on the same golf course on the same day are 17,000,000-1.
But this is different, these were two golfers getting aces on the same hole with successive shots. The odds must simply be greater.”
Jayne Mattey said, “We saw my ball hit the pin, but we thought it had bounced back.”
Clair Shine said, “As we were coming towards the green I heard all the commotion.
“It was just so exciting. We did high fives and probably a little dance, I can’t remember.”
