They say lightning doesn’t strike in the same place, twice. Well, for Shelly Beach Golf Club’s Greg Wall it has.

The 11-marker has managed to pull-off something remarkable – two holes-in-one during the same round. The odds of the achievement? a staggering 156 million-to-one.

Wall pulled off the stunning feat in yesterday’s competition at Shelly Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast. The first ace occurred on the 132-metre fourth hole where his 8-iron rolled into the cup for an one. Unbelievably, he repeated the feat on the 18th hole, where he guided a 5-iron from 153 metres into the cup again.

Club captain Peter Sliwinski said the members were in disbelief at the achievement.

“I was playing two groups ahead of Greg, and when we heard the cheering from the fourth, well, you know that sort of cheer means a hole in one. But when we heard the same cheer on 18, we were all stunned,” Sliwinski said.

Wall’s playing partner John Timmins added: “I was the only one of four players who saw both balls go in the hole. Not many others will see this in their lifetime.”

The celebration of the historical achievement looked like going well into the night for Wall and his mates, with a few post-cheer headaches on the way this morning.

“It will never be repeated at Shelly Beach,” Sliwinski said.

Wall’s scorecard is below (and, yes, we hope he went on to sign it, too!):
