On May 3, Oakland University golfer Kassandra Komma did something pretty much unheard of: she scored the first -- and second -- holes of her career on consecutive par-3 holes.
The senior from Niddatal Hessen, Germany, scored her first career ace on the 177-yard third hole at R&S Sharf Golf Course in Rochester, Mich., and followed it up with another hole-in-one on the 108-yard seventh hole on her way to a 3-under 69.
“After I had the first (hole in one), I couldn't believe it at first because I did not see it go in,” Komma said. “The people we passed were standing on the green and they were yelling, but I still couldn't believe it. The second one, I did not know what to do. I started tearing up because there was no way I could get another one.
“I guess you can say I had a good round of golf ... to say the least.”
Komma finished sixth in the Summit League with a scoring average of 78.67 and earned all-league second-team accolades this past season.
