2 Aces in 2 Days for Laura Diaz

post #1 of 5

This is an incredible story.

Laura Diaz had a hole-in-one for the second straight day in the Kia Classic to become the second player in LPGA Tour history to make two aces in a tournament.
 

Diaz aced the par-3 third hole Saturday in the third round and then holed out on the par-3 sixth on Sunday - a shot she followed with an eagle on the par-4 seventh. She also had an eagle Saturday on the par-5 fifth.

''I went out today hoping I could get another one,'' Diaz said. ''Just really using my head to see how wild and crazy it could get. Then it happened, and I went nuts. It's pretty crazy.''

Jenny Lidback is the only other player with two aces in an event, accomplishing the feat in the 1997 Tournament of Champions.

Diaz used a 6-iron Sunday on the 157-yard sixth.

''I was trying to hit it a little left to right high and take a little bit off of it,'' Diaz said. ''And, yeah, I did it. It went in.''

On the eagle on No. 7, she holed out from 122 yards with a 50-degree wedge, the club she used to hole out twice Saturday. She's the first tour player to follow an ace with an eagle on the next hole

The 38-year-old Diaz shot 2-under 70 in each round to finish the tournament at 2 under. She won her lone LPGA Tour title in 2004.

Cool.. Didn't Arnie do that at a tournament once on the same hole?

I love stories of multiple aces. Thanks for sharing.

I think Brendan Todd did this on the then-Nationwide Tour a few years ago, possibly the same hole.

Ai Miyazato's older brother Yusaku did this in one of the Nevada tournaments a few years ago also, except his were both in the same round. Pocket aces in that state, go figure.

Meanwhile, the 17th at TPC Scottsdale still has only been aced once in tournament history.
