Wow, that is sweeeeeeeet! Hopefully they'll give him some kind of trophy or medal. I can't even do it on the video game!

Now we can all scream how he doesn't deserve to play with the pros, and how uppity it is of him to want to go beyond where we think he ought to be...or do we only do that with female golf phenoms?

Congrats Blake. That is a once in a lifetime feat. I can't do in on a video game, an 18 hole course, or a par 3 course. I haven't even come close. I might have a chance at Putt-Putt.

Good on him. Seriously, I'm jealous. It may never happen again, but to have done it at all, especially at that age, is great. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go drop a deuce.

"I think it was probably a one-time only deal." Math major.

I have been playing for 20 years, I have one ace, and it was trictly luck!! Two is truly amazing!!!

Hit it to an inch, it's brilliance - hole it, and it's luck. I've hit it to an inch more times than I can count, but only had one (proper) hole-in-one. which clearly makes me brilliant, rather than lucky. Fair play to the wee fella, but I doubt Nike will be chasing him just yet - he essentially gave himself four shots on the field by making two holes-in-one and still finished 34th.

I think this kid should invest in the stock market or go to Vegas. He should do some type of gambling while he is still hot. Getting two holes in one is LUCK in the highest degree.
