Lightning Strikes Twice for Tennessee Man

RSS

A Tennessee man accomplished every golfer's dream - twice in the same round.
 
Mark Converse made two holes-in-one during his round Wednesday at Harbour Town Golf Links, a feat the course's assistant pro, Joey D'Amico, compared with getting hit by lightning twice.
 
Converse, 37, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., used a 5-iron to ace the 154-yard fourth hole, the same hole PGA Tour pro Jerry Kelly aced during the third round of the Verizon Heritage event this past April.
 
Then on the par-3 14th, Converse knocked a 6-iron into the cup from 138 yards away.
 
Converse finished with a 83 on the par-71 layout.
 
'I'll play from now until when I'm 80 and it won't happen again,' Converse told The (Hilton Head) Island Packet.
 
Even better, Converse said, 'it didn't happen on the municipal golf course, it happened on one of the greatest courses in the country.'
 
Converse, on vacation, said his only other hole-in-one came in 2003 at the County Club of Bristol in his home state.
