Golfer's one in 64m

Published 13/06/2012

Every golfer dreams of hitting that perfect shot but few will ever match Londonderry man Gerry Guckian who hit two holes in one during the same round, a feat carrying odds of 64 million to one.

But as every player knows, the golfing gods are fickle. After his second glory shot Gerry hit two balls into the Atlantic at the very next hole on the seaside links.

Traditionally anyone hitting a hole in one has to buy drinks for everyone at the 19th. Did that mean Gerry had to buy two rounds to mark his amazing feat?
