Three amateur golfers aced a hole in one on the 15th pin on the same day at the Oxford Golf Club.
Michael Bidmead, 72, and Milos Bilic, 51, were competing in a ‘three-ball’ match when they both hit holes in one just seconds apart on the 201-yard par three hole.
Milos teed off first with a six iron but as the green is in a dip, the golfers could not see how his ball ended up.
Michael then struck a six iron straight at the flag and was surprised to find their two balls both nestled in the hole.
Milos, of Marston, who plays off a handicap of 10, said: “It’s a bit of a blur, but we punched the air with delight, hugged and shook each other’s hands.”
The odds of two players acing the same hole one after the other have been calculated at more than 17 million to one, according to the National Hole in One Registry.
After completing their round the pair went into the club house to enjoy the golfing tradition of buying the drinks, only to discover Alan Green, 60, from Thame, had already been lining them up, having aced the same hole earlier in the day.
Alan, a builder, who also used a six iron to tee off, said: “It was my first hole in one and I’ve been playing 38 years.”
Remarkably it was Michael’s 10th hole in one since he took up the game as a youngster in 1978.
