A player in the U.S. Senior Open golf tournament has set a new record for consecutive hole-in-ones on two consecutive holes.

Frank Bensell Jr. (56) was fortunate enough to have his tee shots on the fourth (par-3) and fifth (par-3) holes go straight into the hole during the second round of the tournament at Newport Country Club (par-70) in Newport, Rhode Island, USA, on Monday.

Never before has a player made holes-in-one on two consecutive holes in any Tour sanctioned event.

On the PGA Tour, there have been three instances of a player making two holes in one day, but never two holes in a row.

That’s because tournament courses rarely have back-to-back par 3s.

Newport Country Club has four par 3s, two of which are on the fourth and fifth holes.

The United States Golf Association (USGA), which organizes the tournament, called it “historic” on its official social media.

In the United States, a hole-in-one occurs only once every 3,500 rounds.

The odds of a hole-in-one are estimated at 1 in 120,000 in the U.S. Hole-in-One Record Book, and the odds of two holes-in-one in a round are estimated at 1 in 67 million.

The odds of a hole-in-one on two consecutive holes have not been calculated.

“I thought I was going to shoot under par on the first hole-in-one,” Benson Jr. said, “but when I got the second one, I couldn’t believe it. It was crazy,” he said.

He recorded his 13th and 14th holes-in-one of the day.

However, he missed the cut with a two-round total of 9-over-par 149 after shooting a 4-over-par 74, four strokes off the pace.

Benson Jr. has played on the PGA Tour six times since 1998, most recently at the 2021 PGA Championship.

He has made only three previous appearances in the PGA Tour Champions for players 50 and older. 온라인카지노사이트
