Golfers dream of making a hole-in-one at some point in their life.

But what about making your first AND second ace in the same round?

The odds on such a feat? Sixty-seven million-to-1 for an amateur golfer, according to the BBC.

But earlier this week, a 16-year-old from Armagh in Northern Ireland, defied those odds.

Teenager Joe Rooney, who plays off an impressive 2-handicap, had never made a hole-in-one in his life until Tuesday, when he made two in a five-hole stretch during a tournament at County Armagh Golf Club.

Here's what Rooney told the BBC:

"On the third hole I hit a great shot," he said.

"The ball bounced in the middle of the green, then spun out to the left and went straight in."

"I played on and was four under par at the seventh hole.

"The green is elevated a bit, but I hit the ball well -- it only bounced once.

"You can't see the pin very well from the seventh, but it smacked the bottom of it and you just knew by the sound that it had gone in.

"We just all went crazy and began hugging each other and jumping around."

Rooney wound up finishing the day at 3-under par. Though it wasn't enough to win, you can be certain he'll never forget ace Nos. 1 and 2 for as long as he lives.
