Lightning does strike twice!
By mustang6560 on 12/17/12
A year and a half ago, I recorded my first hole-in-one using kickntrue's custom-fitted Nike VR Full Cavity irons — he was pissed, to say the least.

He claimed said it's a well-known fact that there is only one hole-in-one in a set of golf clubs and I burned the one and only ace available. Therefore, I rendered his custom-fit Nike's useless.

Well, I've got good news for kickntrue — it is possible to record more than one ace with a single set of clubs. Just ask Keith Horne. He aced the same hole in consecutive days using the same club.
Suffice it to say that Keith Horne enjoys playing the 12th hole at Leopard Creek Estate, site of this week's Alfred Dunhill Championship.

During Friday's second round, the 41-year-old stepped to the tee and recorded an ace on the 192-yard, par-3 hole. In Saturday's third round, the South African improbably repeated the feat.

"Unbelievable. It was the same club, but the wind was different, so I had to hit full eight-iron this time," said Horne, who sits in sixth place after a third-round 68. "It was in all the way – never looked like missing. Went in a bit faster this time so I didn't get to admire it as much as yesterday, but it really got the adrenaline going much more."
So, kickntrue, you can dust off your VR Full Cavity irons and put them back in play once again because they still have life! And as far as hole-in-one stories go, acing the same hole twice in as many days with the same club is pretty phenomenal. Well done, Keith. Well done.

Perhaps club sets only have 1 user hole-in-one power, rather than just 1 hole-in-one? Maybe you should buy poor Andrew's clubs so that you can get another, and then find new and creative ways to sneak in the fact that you 2 holes-in-one into posts. :)

Having performed each feat in the past two years, which will mustang6560 accomplish sooner: 2nd hole-in-one or break 80 a second time?
Kickntrue says:
i'm glad this headed where it headed... if you would've scored a 2nd ace (and somehow with clubs you stole from me) I was going to fly back to Mississippi and kick your butt.

still won't play those clubs though. they're over 1000 miles away from me, sitting in the corner of my parent's garage.

he hit an 8 iron 192 yards!?!?!?!?!?

Kickntrue: When this first happened, I *told* you that you needed to get a recording of the Commitments performing "Mustang Sally," but play it backwards... then follow the rest of the procedure.

NOW look what you've done - you're created a monster!

I have three tight lies woods that I bought several years ago. I made my first hole in one at 150 yards with the 7 wood, second hole in one at 175 yards with the 5 wood, and an eagle from 190 yards on a 430 yard par 4 with the three wood. I've had eagles with my putter , nine iron and 7 iron. The reason I'm still playing with the same clubs I've owned for years is to get an eagle with every one in the bag. Then I'll hang them on the wall and get all new stuff.

Seriously, an 8 iron 192 yards? This guy must be ripping into the ball....
Kurt the Knife says:
jeez. i get 200 yards with my driver
with a tailwind
with favorable coriolis effect
and plate tectonics
as the moon is retreating
and mercury in retrograde
and that black hole in the center of our galaxy gives me a bit of extra carry
drooplefty says:
4 years ago that 8 iron was a 6. Or 5.
mmontisano says:
so they can claim distance advantages, lofts are typically jacked up for game improvement sets, yes, but only 1 to 2 degrees max for players irons.
