FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A golfer in North Dakota achieved the nearly unthinkable – sinking two holes-in-one in the same round.

Troy Radermacher of Ellendale, N.D., used a pitching wedge Sunday to ace the 116-yard 15th hole at Oxbow Country Club. The ball found the cup again on the 135-yard fifth hole.

The Forum newspaper says Radermacher was golfing with family and friends. He says he has had a hard time believing what he did.

Golf Digest calculates the odds of two holes-in-one in the same round at 67 million to one.

But he’s got company. Ruth Day, a 64-year-old retiree from northern England, shot two holes-in-one in the same round on Sept. 9. The next day, former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Steve Blass did the same in a span of 11 holes in Pennsylvania.
