22-year-old Kevin Slayden of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. accomplished the highly improbable when he recorded two holes-in-one in the same three-day tournament during the Jacksonville Amateur.
On Thursday, he struck a 7-iron from 176 yards that disappeared into the sixth hole. During Saturday’s third round, the magic returned when his 8-iron from 160 yards did the same thing on the 15th hole.
On Saturday, his playing partners, James Sokul and David Anthony, rounded out the threesome with scores of 2 and 3, respectively.
Slayden finished T8 in the championship at 2-over-par 218. He is a member at the host Sawgrass Country Club and nearby TPC Sawgrass, home of THE PLAYERS.
Jordan Batchelor, who recently concluded his college golf career at the University of North Florida, won the tournament at 8-under 208 total.
