Double Holes In One for Scottish Player

One hole in one is pretty amazing and most golfers would be ecstatic to accomplish such a desired achievement. While one is quite an accomplishment, you often hear about a golfer’s great hole in one story and working at Foresite Sports, we hear them a lot more often that you think. Now say that one person got another hole in one, heads would turn and everyone would have to agree that he is a very talented player. Taking it one step further, what if this golfer scored two holes in one in one day, on 9 holes? One word comes to mind: unbelievable!

This is the story of Adam Smith, a 47 year old technician, who holds a 7 handicap. It occurred during winter league play at Stonehaven Golf Club, Smith only had time to play 9 holes so he teed off on the 18th (during the winter season Stonehaven changes up the order of the holes) a 163 yard par 3 with a 4 iron. He says he could tell the ball was close but it was still visible from the tee box so he knew it didn’t go in. As he approached the hole however the ball was no where to be seen, Smith says it must have been resting on the pin and finally fell in. The second ace came on hole number 7 a short 132 yard par 3 with a raised green, making it impossible to see the ball. Smith and his playing partner had hit similar shots but it was Smith’s ball that was sitting in the cup. Smith’s accomplishments beat odds of 67,000,000 to 1 on the front nine, who knows what would have happened had he been able to finish the round!
