Golfer Yvonne Gormley waited 10 years for a hole-in-one - then hit two on successive days.
Gormley, who plays off a handicap of 20, could hardly believe it when she aced the par-three 17th at Wrotham Heath Golf Club in a three-ball roll-up.
So you can imagine her shock when she repeated the feat the next day, this time on the par-three fifth, in a foursomes competition.
Gormley, who lives in Ditton, said: “I’ve had a foot from the pin before but never a hole-in-one. I was speechless after the first one - I couldn’t believe it.
“The second day was surreal. How can this happen twice in a row? But it did.
“I haven’t heard of two in a row before - I’m unique! That will be it for the rest of my life.”
Gormley started playing at West Malling Golf Club about a decade ago and has been a member at Wrotham Heath for two years.
It was husband Robert who got her into the sport.
She said: “It was nice to get two in a row but I don’t think my husband liked it!
“He’s been playing for years and never had a hole-in-one. I have mentioned it to him. He’s OK with it really.
“I took up golf to do something with him as the children got older. I got hooked and play in everything I can.
"I don’t play as much with him now, I play with my friends. He’s a better player than me. He plays off 11, I’m 20.”
