    S.D. Teen Aces a Par-4, 310-Yard Hole

    WOW!!! :shock:

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- Sixteen-year-old Chad Van Den Hemel scored a rare double feat in golf with just one swing. The Chester High student aced a par-4, 310-yard hole, giving him both a hole-in-one and a double eagle at the same time. It happened May 22 at The Lakes Golf Course at Madison.

    "We walked up to the green to look for my ball and couldn't find it," said Van Den Hemel, who was golfing with his brother and friends. "We walked all around, then decided to look in the hole - and it was in there."

    Dean Knuth, a Golf Digest contributing editor and former United States Golf Association director, put the odds of making a double eagle at about a million-to-one.

    Van Den Hemel's ace came on a dogleg left that has trees on the bend.

    "I had never tried to go over the trees - I always lay up and go around," he said. "My friend hit his drive pretty good, but I drove over the trees like my dad told me to and tried it with his driver."

    He carded a 40 for the round on the nine-hole course.

    What makes it an even better story is he had to bounce it off the cow on the green before it rolled in ... Ahhh, only in SoDak.

    maybe since it wa s dogleg, and he couldn't see..... some kids were playing a trick on him.... after they saw his ball come over the trees they ran over and put it in the hole... I have thought about it before in my younger days.... it would be one hell of a prank!

    Thanks Lotza!

    On hole 4 at Troy Burne in Hudson I always put the ball on the green close to the pin so it is not that difficult to do. But the fact it rolled in I agree is amazing.
