Nel­spruit Golf Club mem­bers Joseph and Ce­cilia Abra­ham cre­ated pos­si­ble South African golf­ing his­tory when they each had holes-in-one while play­ing to­gether at Nel­spruit on Jan­uary 3. Joseph, who plays o 15, aced the 172-me­tre 13th hole, and 17-hand­i­cap Ce­cilia chipped in for a birdie two on the same hole. Four holes later, at the 110me­tre 17th, Ce­cilia saw her tee shot hit the flag, but only when she reached the green did she re­alise that she had also holed out for her first ace.

Said Joseph: “For the rst time I re­alised how de­ter­mined a woman can be when she is jeal­ous.” Prior to this, ev­ery time Ce­cilia got the bet­ter of him on the golf course, he would taunt her by say­ing that she had never had a hole-in-one. Now he has lost that ad­van­tage.

Then, 11 days later, on Jan­uary 14, Joseph had another hole-in-one, once again on his lucky hole 13, this time at High­land Gate golf es­tate. Jaco Ack­er­mann, Nel­spruit

Golf Di­gest has no record of a hus­band and wife hav­ing holes-in-one in the same round while play­ing to­gether.There was a cel­e­brated oc­ca­sion in Michi­gan last year when an Amer­i­can cou­ple, Tony and Janet Blundy, had con­sec­u­tive aces on the same hole.
