Those are the odds of hitting a hole-in-one. However fair or unfair the odds may be, one junior golfer defied those odds. Twice.
Cy Norman, a sophomore at Benton High School in Benton, Illinois had two hole-in-ones in the same round, beating the 67-million-to-1 odds.
Nearly opting not to play due to impending weather, Norman went to go play his home course Benton Country Club.
Playing solo, Norman came up to the par-three fourth hole which was playing 135 yards, 15 yards shorter than the scorecard.
“It one-hopped in,” Norman told Golfweek’s, Tim Schmitt. “Some women from the third tee saw it go in.”
This marked Norman’s third hole-in-one in his short career. After having a Benton teammate Collin Miller join him on the sixth hole, Miller joked with Norman that he should do it again on the par-three seventh.
Playing 120 yards, Norman striped one just left of the hole. Having enough spin on the ball, Norman zipped it back just enough for the ball to trickle into the hole. As it fell, Norman and Miller went crazy.
Despite having four career hole-in-ones, Norman has remained humble, telling Golfweek “I mean, it’s just as much luck as it is skill. All the ones I’ve had could have easily hit the pin and ricocheted out.”
