Deja vu Golfer

LUBBOCK, Texas - An insurance agent playing in a weekend tournament followed up his first hole-in-one with another one day later.

On the same hole. Using the same club !

"I've never even heard of such a thing," said Jack North, managing director of the Rawls Course where Danny Leake accomplished the feat.

Leake, 53, aced the sixth hole on Saturday with a five-iron from 174 yards out. He aced the same hole with the same club from 178 yards out in Sunday's final round.

Leake, who has a 14 handicap and was seeded in one of the tournament's lowest flights, quickly became the talk of the clubhouse.

"My five-iron is becoming my favourite club," Leake told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, adding he was more than satisfied with his hole-in-one on Saturday and had no thought of repeating the gem.

"I've always wanted to make a hole-in-one, but I'm nowhere near as good a golfer as most of the people (at the tournament)," he added. "That's what make this whole thing crazy. I'll probably never hit another one as long as I live, but I'm OK with that."
