From Bush League Chronicle:

A 76-year-old Nashville man is receiving his due credit after reportedly sinking not one, but two holes-in-one during the same round. The incredible feat occurred at Windtree Golf Course in Mt. Juliet, Tenn. on Dec. 6.

Believe it or not, the pair of aces now raises Jones' tally to five in 31 years of playing. Quite impressive, eh?

"I don't see long distances very well, and thankfully I had two other guys playing with me. I hit the ball straight at the green and saw it hit and going toward the hole," Jones said of his first ace on a par-3, 120-yard hole on No. 5, via USA Today. "I couldn't make it out going in the hole, but both of those guys said, 'It's in the hole,' and there was a group beside the green at the tee for hole No. 6 that saw it."

His second came on No. 11, a 125-yard hole and also a par-3.

"I was just beside myself. It is just an unbelievable feat," said one of his playing pals who witnessed the accomplishment. "If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it — I saw it and it is still hard to believe."

The National Hole-in-One Registry lists that the odds of someone actually nailing two hole-in-one shots at 67 million to 1. Basically, the spectacle is as rare as the night sky is dark.
