Filipino shoots two hole-in-ones
For most golfers, getting a hole-in-one would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but Filipino Angelo Que enjoyed the thrill twice in nine holes as he prepared to defend his title at the Selangor Masters in Malaysia this week.
The 32-year-old was blown away with his double-ace day, but was wary about using up all his luck before the Asian Tour event even began at the RM1.2million ($400,000) event hosted by the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club.
"I couldn't have asked for a better start," said Que, who bagged the hole-in-ones at the sixth and 14th holes of a practise round. "I've never had a hole-in-one in my life and all of a sudden, I have two in one day."
Que, who used a six iron and pitching wedge to hole out, said he hoped his luck did not run out.
"The funny thing was we were talking about it on the 14th tee and said what if I had another hole in one here and I did it.
"It could be a good omen or a bad omen. When you're so lucky on one day, the next day might be different. Hopefully it'll continue for the whole week."
