FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. Lightning struck twice for a Fayetteville golfer last weekend.
The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/VKk33S) that Johnny Taylor made a hole-in-one on two holes at the King's Grant course.
Taylor had recorded an ace on another hole on the course about eight years ago.
He used a 7-iron on the 160-yard seventh hole for the first ace while playing Saturday. Taylor didn't see the ball go in the hole but got one of his partners to look when he couldn't find his ball on the green.
He hit a pitching wedge on the 120-yard 13th hole and watched it spin back into the hole.
Taylor says his arms went numb after the second ace.
The National Hole-in-One Registry says the odds of that happening are 67 million to 1.
