Golf Digest once commissioned Francis Scheid, Ph.D, the retired chairman of the Boston University math department, to calculate an amateur golfer's chances of making two holes-in-one in the same round. His result: One in 67 million.
Andrew Dodt is no amateur – the 27-year-old Australian has played many of the world tours for years – but he defied some major odds by pulling off the feat in Round 2 of the European Tour's Nordea Masters on Friday.
Dodt, who started on the back nine of the Bro Hof Slott course, aced the 11th hole, then followed with another one on the seventh.
He finished with a 7-under 65 that included two aces, five birdies and two bogeys. Birdie on his final hole left him just inside the cut line after an opening-round 77.
The only player to record two aces in a single PGA Tour round is Yusaku Miyazato, who accomplished the feat at the 2006 Reno-Tahoe Open.
