Two golfers, two once-in-a-lifetime shots, resulting in back-to-back holes-in-one on a recent remarkable day at Palmetto-Pine Country Club in Cape Coral.
For Keith Polsinelli and Dave Breitner – both of Cape Coral – their shots on the par-3, 154-yard sixth hole at Palmetto-Pine were their first aces and believed to be the first “ones” on back-to-back shots in the 52-year history of the golf course.
The February day played out like this:
Keith stepped to the tee, hit his 8-iron, and watched the ball roll into the cup. After a celebration, he turned to Dave and said, “now, beat that.”
Considering the odds of any hole in one are 12,500 to 1, Dave didn’t back off the unthinkable as he watched his 8-iron shot roll into the hole as well. And if you thought the odds of making a hole-in-one were out of sight, consider the chances of making back-to-back aces were 17 million to 1.
The rest of the day was filled with plenty of celebration and buzz around the two golfers and their unbelievable accomplishments as drinks, handshakes and pats on the back were shared.
