Do you think a hole-in-one would make a bad round great? How about two? At the Liberty Lake Golf Course in Spokane, WA, Chris Varallo hit a 7-iron on the 143 yard third hole and one-hopped it into the hole for the first hole in one. Eight holes later, took 8-iron 140 yards to again one-hop it for the second hole-in-one of the round.
"The first one was pretty amazing," said Varallo, 31. "But after the second, everyone was in utter disbelief. Other people on the course heard the screaming and were coming over to see what had happened."
"He did fall apart a little more than usual after that second one," said Dave Knutson, a member of his foursome who works with Varallo. "But he's a hack. Even leading up to it, his scorecard read something like 8-7-1-6-7-9 ... I mean, I don't know how it could have happened. Both of them were good-looking shots. In fact, they were almost identical -- same trajectory with a little fade. And both of them were one hop and plunk!"
Varallo, an attorney with a 22 handicap, finished his round at 31 strokes over par for a 101.
