Andrew Dodt was pretty happy when he hit a hole-in-one at the European Tour's Nordea Masters this week. He was in disbelief when he hit another. Yep, a professional golfer hit two holes-in-one in a single round this weekend at the Bro Hof Slott Golf Course in Sweden.
CBS Sports reports that Dodt opened the weekend with a poor showing of 77 during his first round and needed to have a great second round to make the cut. Dodt stepped up to the task by hitting two holes-in-ones and five birdies to bring his score down to a 65.
Dodt hit his first ace on the 11th, a 175 yard par 3. The shot lifted Dodt's spirits as he continued to cut strokes from his score. On the 7th hole (his 16th for the day) Dodt hit a 208 yard shot for another ace.
Dodt still trails leader Matteo Manassero by 11 strokes but the 27-year-old Australian golfer definitely has bragging rights at the course.
Hitting a hole-in-one is a pretty rare event and hitting two almost never happens. According to the Devil Ball, an amateur golfer has about a 67 million to 1 chance of hitting two holes-in one during the same round. A professional golfer's chances may be slightly better but according to the Golf Channel it has only happened once before.
Yusako Miyazato hit two aces during the Reno-Tahoe Open in 2006.
Here's a look at Dodt's score card.
