Tyrrell Hatton hasn't had the best of luck lately.

He's missed three consecutive cuts on the European Tour. But, perhaps, a little bit of luck rubbed off on him during his two rounds at last week's Irish Open.

The 25-year-old Englishman hit the links Monday with some buddies, and something amazing happened. 

Hatton holed out on his first ever albatross, and on the very next hole, he sunk a hole-in-one on a par three.

The odds of that happening are about the same as seeing a real leprechaun.

Let's hope the luck of the Irish stays with him on his next Tour start.
