WOOSTER, Ohio — The odds of an average golfer scoring a single hole-in-one are about 12,500 to 1, according to the National Hole-In-One Registry.
Howard Freeman, an 89-year-old golfer, sank two in one week.
"You never expect it,” Freeman told WKYC. "There’s a lot of luck to it, but sometimes you hit the perfect shot."
Freeman used a 5-wood on the eighth hole to get his first hole-in-one May 16. A couple of days later, he used a driver and sank the ball 150 yards away on the third hole.
“On eight, the ball hit on the front edge of the green and rolled about 8 to 10 yards,” Freeman, recalling the feat, told the Akron Beacon Journal. “On the third hole, the ball hit on the edge of the green, rolled a little bit to the right and fell in the hole.”
He has hit two other aces. His first was in 1985. He did it again the next year. All have been at Wooster Country Club.
