Aussie is first European Tour pro to hit two aces in same round
The odds of a professional golfer making a hole-in-one on a par-three are around 2,500 to 1, so what price a Tour pro achieving the feat twice in the same round?
For that’s exactly what Australian European Tour pro Andrew Dodt (pictured above) achieved at the Nordea Masters at Bro Hof Slott, in Sweden, last week.
Dodt, 27, started his second round on the par-four 10th, and, after a par there, moved to the 175-yard par-three 11th. He knocked in his tee shot for an ace and added three birdies before he reached the 208-yard, par-three seventh hole, his 16th of the day. Amazingly, Dodt, holed out there as well.
Yet, even with two holes-in-one, Dodt needed a birdie on his final hole to make the cut. He achieved it with a 65 and ended the four days tied 44th.
He was the first player in European Tour history to achieve the feat and told the Tour website: “I can’t get my head around it. I’m pretty proud to be the first one to do it. The shot at the 11th kick-started things. I didn’t putt very well today so I’m glad I was able to hole with a long club.”
