Johnson records back-to-back aces! Jedd Johnson started off his November golf weekend with some excitement as the 56-year-old Denham Springs, La. resident and Greystone Golf and Country Club member managed to ace the third hole at his home club twice in two days this past weekend. Johnson, who has been playing golf for 25 years, recorded the duplicate feats on Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3.The shot were both with an 8-iron and both 147 yards. In fact, the pin was in the same spot for both hole-in-ones, which were the first two of his lifetime.There were some slight differences in the shots though. During the first one, he was playing with Brian Davenport, Ken Ford and James Moak and the shot landed past the hole and spun back in the cup. On the second one, Davenport and Ford were with him along with Gene Termini.That shot hit short and left of the cup and rolled in setting off some excitement at the semi-private club in Denham Springs. "We were more excited for the second one," Johnson said. Jedd Johnson "We made lots of noise when it rolled in on Sunday." The odds of making a hole-in-one are about 12,500 to 1 and those same oddsmakers say the odds of making a hole-in-one on the same hole in consecutive days is 57 million to 1.The last recorded time this happened in the United States was in Oct. 2016 when 80-year-old Rodney Alt of Surprise,Arizona accomplished the extremely rare feat on a 95-yard hole.
