A normal round on the golf course turned into the memory of a lifetime for a retired police officer in Virginia after he hit two hole-in-ones in the span of an hour at the Ashley Plantation Country Club in Daleville, according to the The Roanoke Times.
The first shot was reportedly at the 182-yard seventh hole of the Meadows Course and the second came four holes later at the 118-yard second hole of the Hills Course.
The golfer, J.R “Butch” Blessard, told the paper he is normally an 11-handicapper and sadly he had no tips for other retirees looking to put up such amazing stats. "It's strictly luck," he said. "There's no skill involved. I'm a good average golfer and I got lucky."
According to the National Hole-In-One Registry, the odds of a player making two holes-in-one in the same round is 67 million to 1.
So how do we know it's real? Three of four of Blessard's playing partners told the newspaper they had witnessed the amazing feat. And for his part, the 67-year-old said he was willing to do whatever it took to silence the doubters.
“All I can tell the cynics is I will take a polygraph test. And they can televise it live on ESPN if they want!” he said.
No word yet if the Worldwide Leader -- or other golfers down on their game -- came calling.Full Story >>
