Golfer Makes Hole-In-One And Albatross In Five Hole Stretch


A 20-handicap golfer achieved the unthinkable by making a hole-in-one and an albatross in a five hole stretch! Irishman Rowan McCarthy made an ace on the 12th hole at Wembley Golf Course in Perth and just four holes later went on to make an albatross 2. He carded a round of 14-over-par, his third-best ever round, to finish first in the Irish Perth Golf society day at the popular public course. Rowan kept to the traditions and went on to buy everyone who played in the competition a drink.

“I am still trying to get my head around it,” Rowan told the Irish Examiner. “Statistically, the chances of a hole in 1 are 12,000-to-1 and an albatross is 6 million-to-1. The odds of one of each in the same round…who knows? Some say it is 72 billion to one. It is a day I will never forget.”
