‘It’s like a dream’: Golfer hits hole-in-one on same hole in consecutive rounds

Scoring a hole-in-one is hard enough, but one Pennsylvania golfer has done it twice in the same hole in back-to-back rounds. “I almost had a heart attack,” said golfer Chuck Lepisto. “I’m not a very demonstrative person, but I’ll tell you it made me feel warm inside.” Lepisto has been playing golf for 50 years, and it’s safe to say he’ll never have another week like last week. Last Sunday, the 74-year-old hit his first-ever hole-in-one on the par-3 15th at Conestoga Country Club. “He was a little stunned. He kept looking and looking because, again, this is his first hole-in-one and you never expect to have that,” said Lepisto golf partner Tom Klingensmith. Sister station WGAL asked Lepisto if he did a dance after the hole-in-one. “No, no dancing. My partners did enough dancing for me,” Lepisto said. A former engineer, Lepisto played his next round at the club three days later. “I said to someone coming onto the green, I said, ‘And two in a row?’ I said no, come on, it’s just a pipe dream,” Lepisto said. His friends said they didn’t know the ball had gone into the hole and they couldn’t tell with a scope. Effectively, it was a second hole in one on the same 15th hole in back-to-back rounds. “I tell people it’s like a dream,” Lepisto said. “Everyone wants one, every golfer wants one. wants one. But it’s a coincidence, you have to have a little luck. return on the same hole is 1 in 5 at 26 million. “But I was also happy because it meant I would have a margarita “, said Pete Horn, Lepisto’s golf partner during his second hole in one. And Lepisto followed tradition, buying drinks in the clubhouse both times. “Not all the young revelers were there these two days, so I got away with it a bit quietly,” Lepisto said.

Lepisto has been playing golf for 50 years, and it’s safe to say he’ll never have another week like last week.

Last Sunday, the 74-year-old hit his first-ever hole-in-one on the par-3 15e at the Conestoga Country Club.

“He was a little stunned. He kept looking and looking because, again, this is his first hole-in-one and you never expect to have that,” said Lepisto golf partner Tom Klingensmith.

Sister station WGAL asked Lepisto if he did a dance after the hole-in-one.

“No, no dancing. My partners did enough dancing for me,” Lepisto said.

A former engineer, Lepisto played his next round at the club three days later.

“I said to someone coming onto the green, I said, ‘And two in a row?’ I said no, come on, it’s just a pipe dream,” Lepisto said.

His friends said they didn’t know the ball had gone into the hole and couldn’t tell with a scope.

Sure enough, it was a second hole-in-one on the same 15e hole in consecutive rounds.

“I tell people it’s like a dream,” Lepisto said. “Everyone wants one, every golfer wants one. But it’s a coincidence, you have to have a little luck.”

Lepisto said it was really good and surreal.

The odds of an amateur hitting a hole-in-one are 1 in 12,500. The odds of doing so in consecutive rounds on the same hole are 1 in 5 in 26 million.

“But I was also happy because it meant I would have a margarita,” Lepisto’s golf partner Pete Horn said on his second hole-in-one.

And Lepisto followed tradition, buying drinks at the clubhouse every time.

“All the young partygoers weren’t there those two days, so I kinda got out of it quietly,” Lepisto said.
