81-year-old golfer makes back to back hole-in-ones
A Minnesota golfer has accomplished something most only dream of, and he did it twice in one game.
Eddie Manderville was playing a round with friends at a Minneapolis golf course on August 9, 2013, when he got a hole-in-one. To everyone’s surprise, the same thing happened on the next hole, according to a report.
Manderville, 81 has been playing golf for 58 years, but said he’s never had that kind of success.
“I’ve had hole-in-ones, so I thought I saw everything,” Manderville said, “but never two in a row!”
According to the National Hole in One Registry, the odds of shooting two holes-in-one on a regulation course during a single round are 76 million to one.
