Two aces, same hole, same day, same guy
Southern California PGA
It's a thrill of a lifetime for many golfers to actually make a hole-in-one. But how many get a chance to say they've made two? How about two on the same hole...on the same day? The odds of that are....let's just say, extremely low.
However, not so much for PGA Professional Chris Gilley. The pro from Sea Cliff Country Club in Huntington Beach, Calif. was playing in the Southern California PGA TPS Series, a 36 hole event at Indian Wells Golf Resort, when he aced the 127 yard 17th hole in his first round. Later in the day, during his second he came back to the hole (this time it played to 131 yards) and miraculously, made another '1'.
In the understatment of the year, Gilley called the day "the greatest day of his life on a golf course." You can hear his thoughts on his amazing day here.
Gilley ended up coming in a tie for second place in the tournament.
