A Pennsylvania high school senior made a hole-in-one while preparing for a rival match. And then made another one 40 minutes later.

According to the Morning Call, Ben Tetzlaff, 17, made two aces less than an hour apart during a nine-hole practice round.

The first came at the 104-yard second hole at Iron Lakes Country Club and the second at the 140-yard sixth.

“I still can’t believe it, and I was the one who did it,” Tetzlaff told the Morning Call. “So I can’t imagine being someone who didn’t see it trying to believe it.”

The National Hole-in-One Registry lists the odds of making two holes-in-one in the same round as 67 million to 1.

Parkland High School golf coach Scott Levan said he didn’t see the first hole-in-one but did hear the reaction, and did witness the second one.

“I know a couple guys who waited 60 years between holes-in-one, but I’ve never seen someone wait 40 minutes,” Levan told the paper. “I’ve never had one, so I still have a shot to beat his record.”
