The average golfer has approximately 12,000 to 1 odds to drain an ace. For an albatross — scoring three below par — those odds fall to an improbable 6 million to 1. Carding those two in a row? Now that’s not even worth calculating, right?
Not for Conor Kelly.
At the Junior Golf Hub Championship in Halifax, Mass., Kelly — in the class of 2019 — sank his tee shot on the par-3 eighth, then holed out with his second shot on a 480-yard par-5 the very next hole. In case that wasn’t enough, he birdied No. 10, to put him 6-under over those three holes.
Now that’s a scorecard you’ll want to frame.
Kelly made the turn at 5-under 31, then shot 36 on the back nine. The 67 launched him into the top 20 after a first-round 81 and a second-round 76.
