IS THIS THE GREAT­EST FEAT IN GOLF?

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE -

Heard the one about Ma­son Nome, a 15-year-old, who made a hole-in-one and al­ba­tross in the same round in 2016? Well, he’s just been eclipsed by another ju­nior golfer, who achieved the same feat on BACK-TO-BACK holes at the Ju­nior Golf Hub Cham­pi­onship in Mas­sachusetts. Teenager Conor Kelly holed his tee shot on a 198-yard par 3 and then re­peated the feat from 220 yards with his sec­ond shot on a par 5. To top things off, the 16-year-old birdied his next hole at the Hal­i­fax Country Club to com­plete an ul­tra-rare 1-2-3 run on eight, nine and 10. He fin­ished his round on five-un­der to tie for 17th.
