Doubling up

WHAT are the odds of two players scoring holes-in-one on the same hole in consecutive shots?

Hundreds of millions-to-one, no doubt.

But that’s what happened when Mornington Golf Club members Jun Park and Bob Packham, pictured, scored the notable double on the 127 metre par three 10th hole on Wednesday 22 January.

Park, who plays off a handicap of 16, teed off first and watched his ace roll in, followed by Packham, off 17, who did the same thing moments later.

Club general manager Craig Murdoch said the men were playing partners in the daily competition.

“Stunned players in the group behind watched on in disbelief,” he said.
