Two Women Get Successive Holes-in-One
LONDON (April 27) - Two amateur women golfers hit consecutive holes-in-one at a course in England, defying odds of a million to one, their club said on Friday.
June Wiener, 75, and Sue Baskind, 61, both aced the 152-yard par-three 24th of the 27-hole course at the Moor Allerton Golf Club in Leeds, northern England during a four ball last weekend.
"We were told the odds were a million to one -- I wish I'd had a pound on it," said Wiener, whose two artificial hips appear not to have hampered her golf swing.
"We were so glad that there were two others with us as otherwise people wouldn't have believed us," she told Reuters.
Club manager Richard Crann said bookmakers William Hill had quoted odds of 1,000,000-1 on consecutive holes-in-one.
"To get two holes in one in the same game is unbelievable, especially since it is a long par three surrounded by bunkers," he said.
The pair celebrated by buying members whisky in the clubhouse and the club said it would be putting up a plaque to mark their achievement.
