Blog & Tackle: Hole-in-one, twice in two

April 18, 2009 | Chris Pika

ATHENS, Ga.–We all know how hard golf can be. So, with that in mind, take a look at this video of Brendon Todd, who made a hole-in-one on the same hole for the second consecutive round at the Athens Regional Foundation Classic on Friday.

Todd, who played his collegiate golf just up the road at the University of Georgia, aced the 17th hole at Jennings Mill Country Club from 147 yards on Thursday and 157 yards on Friday.

In the 20 years of the Nationwide Tour, no player has ever recorded two aces in a single tournament. The last player to ace the same hole twice in the same tournament event was Graham Marsh at the 2004 Senior British Open, who did it in the first and third rounds.

Only five players have ever had two holes-in-one in the same tournament on the PGA Tour, including two who did it twice in the same round. Yusaku Miyazato was the last to accomplish the feat in the 2006 Reno-Tahoe Open when he aced holes 7 and 12 in the second round.

Today, as Todd made the turn on his third round, he had to pass by the driving range and putting green. Several of the Nationwide players stopped for a moment to tease him, asking him how many holes-in-one he had on the front nine. Todd laughed and said, “Two — on the par-fours.”
