The Double Ace!
By mustang6560 on 2/7/12
Daniel Chopra accomplished an extremely rare feat Monday ahead of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am - he aced not one, but two holes!
During his practice round at Pebble Beach Golf Links, the Swede aced the par 3 seventh hole and found similar success (luck) at the historic par 3 17th. On the hole seven, Daniel hit an easy gap wedge from 102 yards and found the bottom of the cup. And 10 holes later, from 176 yards on the 17th hole, Daniel hit a smooth 7-iron and again ended up in the bottom of the cup.
Too bad it was only a practice round! Can you imagine what it would be like to watch someone do that live on national television?
While the odds of making a hole in one for a professional golfer (3000 to 1) are much lower than the average golfer (12,000 to 1), the odds of any golfer recording two hole in ones during one round, according to the National Hole-In-One Registry, is 67 million to 1. So, yea, maybe I should have said Daniel accomplished an improbable feat!

Today in golf should read YESTERDAY in golf.
For latest news, check out GPICKIN's posts lol. (I posted it in the forum yesterday).
I'm trying to figure out if I am 12000 in 1, how many par 3 shots have i hit so far. I assume 4, par 3s per round, means i need 3000 rounds. I have less than 100 rounds, I got a few more to go :)

I once witnessed 2 hole in ones on within the same group. The first one was a woman who hit a worm burner that rolled onto the green into the cup. Every body went nuts. It was followed by her husband who hit a 9 iron on top of hers.Nutsville all over again. After thinking it over for a moment the woman commented " Damn it John, You don't let me do anything".
My biggest fear is getting an ace on a mulligan.
@homer- That's why you never should take a mulligan on a par 3.
If you take a mulligan and happen to jar it then you deserve to live with it.
mulli-ace is just a really good par...
Previously reported. Playing with the boss, he dunks the first in a pond, second tee shot screams across the green bounces off a landscaping timber back to the hole. We scored it as par. Just like Freddie Couples.
