Deja Vu Golfer Aces Same Hole Using Same Club

LUBBOCK, Texas -- A Lubbock insurance agent playing in a weekend tournament followed up his first hole-in-one with another one a day later.
On the same hole.
Using the same club.
'I've never even heard of such a thing,' said Jack North, managing director of the Rawls Course, where Danny Leake accomplished the feat.
Leake, 53, aced the sixth hole on Saturday with a 5-iron from 174 yards out. He aced the same hole with the same club from 178 yards out in Sunday's final round.
Leake, who has a 14 handicap and was seeded in one of the tournament's lowest flights, quickly became the talk of the clubhouse.
'My 5-iron is becoming my favorite club,' Leake said in Monday editions of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. He said he was more than satisfied with his ace on Saturday and had no thought of repeating the gem.
Leake went on to win the sixth flight with a score of 87-84-85-256.
'I've always wanted to make a hole-in-one, but I'm nowhere near as good a golfer as most of the people (at the tournament). That's what make this whole thing crazy,' Leake said. 'I'll probably never hit another one as long as I live, but I'm OK with that.'
Leake was playing at the Texas Tech Rawls Course club championship.
