This is pure magic:
Jake Martinez of Tucson, Arizona, recently made two holes-in-one. In one round. Seven holes apart. Jake will celebrate his 12th birthday on Saturday.
Playing in the U.S. Kids Palm Springs Open on Sept. 18, Martinez aced the 100-yard fifth hole and then the 110-yard 12th hole at Mission Hills North in Rancho Mirage, California. He used a pitching wedge both times.
Do you know how many people go their whole lives without a hole-in-one??
This kid got TWO!
ON THE SAME DAY IN THE SAME ROUND!
So what was he thinking as the balls were in flight?
"The first one, it was on my mind the entire way: ‘Oh, this thing has a chance.' On the next one, the dad of one of Jake's playing partners said, ‘He just didn't do it again, did he?' And as soon as he said that, I'm like, ‘Oh my gosh, this might go in again,' and yea, there it goes."
Do you want to know what the statistical odds of this happening are?
The National Hole-In-One Registry lists the odds of an average golfer making an ace at 12,000-to-1. A low handicapper's odds are about 5,000-to-1. But get this: the odds of making two aces in the same round are 67 million-to-1.
Too bad the kid isn't old enough to play the lotto, or else he could have picked up a ticket on the way home just for kicks!
