Earlier this season we shared the story of a Collingwood woman who recorded 2-holes-in one back in March at the Renaissance Golf Club in Fort Myers, Fla. 

Against all odds it happened again this past Thursday for a Victoria Man at Bear Mountain resort.

The 67-year-old Bear Mountain Resort member first conquered the 163-yard par-3 10th hole on the Valley Course with his 6-iron. Just four holes later, he brought the 135-yard 14th to its knees with an 8-iron, both struck crisply and witnessed by partners Keith Walsh and Gordon Barnes.

“It was an exceptional day today, I guess you can say – two holes-in-one in one day, in one round, is unbelievable.” said Swonell.

The odds of it happening are also astronomical. Back in 1999, Golf Digest reported that one insurance company placed the odds of an amateur making two holes-in-one in one round at 9,222,500 to 1.

The National Hole-In-One Registry currently has those odds at 67 million to 1.
