Denmark's Morten Orum Madsen had a two-hole closing stretch Thursday at the Tshwane Open that he won't soon forget. He recorded back-to-back eagles -- one a hole-in-one -- at Pretoria Country Club to finish with a 63.

On the par-3 eighth hole -- playing about 135 yards -- Madsen hit this perfect wedge shot that landed behind the hole and then made a beeline for the cup:
Some golfers might have a letdown on the next hole. Not Madsen. The 26-year-old native of Denmark promptly eagled the 549-yard par-5 ninth to close out a great day at the office.

If a bogey on the last hole of your round may make for a sleepless night, imagine how restful you'll feel after going eagle-eagle.
On of the great things about golf is that there's always a shot or putt to get excited about no matter your level of ability.
But this? This celebration for what looks like nothing more than a 10-foot putt might be a bit much (h/t Golf.com).
The video was posted to YouTube on March 8 and is said to have happened at The Dragon's Tooth golf course in Fort William, Scotland.
My best guess is that the course was closed that day due to rain -- note the overflow of water in the bunker. And that guy? I'm just going to assume he's Dragon Tooth's version of Carl Spackler in Caddyshack (he certainly has the look down) and was sneaking in a few holes because he didn't think "the really heavy stuff's comin' down for quite a while."
We're used to seeing winners of the LPGA's Kraft Nabisco Championship take a plunge in Poppie's Pond... but at least that's a pond -- and that's after they win the tournament.
So, all around, strange but funny celebration from Scotland's Spackler.
Here's a look at some of the otherwise stunning views that sweep across Dragon's Tooth, which -- according to its website -- was named No. 1 in Scotland's Best 9-hole Golf Courses by Bunkered Magazine in 2013.
If you're not a fan of reptiles, you may want to stay clear of Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Fla.
Last week, the golf club posted pictures via its Facebook page of a massive -- and I mean massive -- alligator taking a casual stroll on the green.

Umm... No thank you. Let's pick it up and move on...
Unless it's match play. Then you have to make your opponent putt, right?
