Some people go an entire lifetime without a hole-in-one. For Jason Cheng, he had to wait about 34 years for his first. Then about 20 minutes for the second one.
Cheng was playing in a scramble tournament at Coyote Creek Golf Club in Morgan Hill, Calif., when he made a hole-in-one at the par-3 second hole from 171 yards using a 5-iron. It was the first of his life. A good day, right? Not so fast, my friend.
Two holes later, Cheng stepped to the tee at the par-3 fourth hole with a 7-iron in hand. Sure enough, Cheng dropped another one in off the tee, this time from 152 yards, for his second ace in three holes.
“The second one was pure shock,” Cheng said, according to the San Jose Mercury News. “We were running around the tee box like chickens with our heads cut off. I don’t know where we thought we were going. We were just running.”
“It was pure joy, lots of hugs,” Cheng added.
The stated statistical odds of that happening are 67 million to 1. However, in such a close stretch, those odds have to skyrocket.
Technically, Cheng had to buy two rounds for everyone at the bar after the round. However, he got off easy. By the time his team had come in, only about one-tenth of the 130-player field was left.
