Take a look at that scorecard above, the product of Houston kid Aubrey Phillips. Good but not astonishing, right? A 5-over 77 in the Greater Houston Junior Championship.
Now, look a little closer. Specifically, at holes 5 and 16.
Yep, Phillips, age 16, recorded two aces in a single round. How well did you play when you were 16, huh?
Anyway, Phillips used a 9-iron to ace the 155-yard fifth, his first-ever hole in one. Eleven holes later -- using the same Slazenger ball and the same club -- he found the bottom of the cup on the 160-yard 16th.
The odds of one golfer getting two aces in a single round? Only about 1 in 64 million, according to Golf Digest.
The aces proved to be the difference. He finished three shots inside the cut line, and moved on to the Houston Golf Association Junior Championship next weekend at Redstone Golf Club. And if he doesn't card three aces there, I think we're all going to be severely disappointed.
