Believe it or not: Golfer gets two aces over span of three holes


GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Montana golfer hit two holes-in-one in the span of three holes during men’s league play this week.

George Cook told the Great Falls Tribune ( that after he added a 30-foot birdie putt on his final hole of the nine-hole match he bought a couple lottery tickets.

Cook, who is 58, hit the first hole-in-one of his career Tuesday with a 7-iron on the 149-yard 13th hole at the Anaconda Hills course in Great Falls. He figured he could check it off his bucket list.

He quickly added his second — with a sand wedge on the 112-yard No. 15.

Cook says both shots felt “like butter.”

The shots were witnessed by Kent Cox, Scotty Harrison and Doug Neil.

Cook finished the nine-hole match against Cox with a 2-under-par 33. He says he usually shoots in the low 40s.
