12-year-old girl Naomi Lee made two holes-in-one on executive course in same round

A 12-year-old girl from Menlo Park, Ca. has accomplished something most golfers would only dream of: She made two aces in the same round of golf.

Naomi Lee was playing the Peter Hay executive course in Pebble Beach, Ca. March 3rd when she made two holes-in-one. The executive course is a nine-hole par-3, but her accomplishment is impressive nonetheless.

According to Golf Digest, the aces came on the 82-yard third hole (using a 9-iron) and the 64-yard sixth hole (using a 52-degree wedge).

The odds of recording two holes-in-one in the same round is 67 million to one, though it was accomplished by the aunt of an LBS reader three years ago.

Lee now has three holes-in-one in her career, all three coming on the same course. Keep your eye out for her because she was recently named the Bay Area Player of the Year by U.S. Golf Kids.

Lee says she’s become pretty well known locally since accomplishing the feat, but we want to remind her she still has a long way to go before approaching Kim Jong Il’s record.

Kim Jong Il Shot 38-Under His First Time Playing Golf, Including 11 Holes-in-One

Now that Kim Jong Il has passed away, I am starting to realize that I should have paid more attention to him while he was alive. The ruler of North Korea was truly a remarkable man, and while many stories have been told about him before I never took note of the fact that he was such an incredibly talented sportsman. In addition to giving North Korea’s World Cup teams “regular tactical advice,” Kim Jong Il was also reportedly the most naturally-gifted golfer to ever roam the earth. Here is one of many facts that the Herald Sun shared with us that were at one time printed about Kim Jong Il in North Korea.

In 1994, Pyongyang media reported that Kim Jong-Il shot an amazing 11 holes-in-one to achieve an unprecedented 38-under-par game on a regulation 18-hole golf course – on his first try at golf. Reports say each of his 17 bodyguards verified the record-breaking feat.

Amazing. After all this time of thinking Tiger Woods was the best in his prime and praising Rory McIlroy, we now realize that North Korea’s former leader is likely the greatest golfer to ever live.  For those of you who are skeptical: his 17 bodyguards confirmed it.  That’s 17 people.  Obviously they didn’t just have his best interests in mind.  Most golfers go through life hoping they can experience a hole-in-one. Kim Jong Il got to enjoy 11 in one round.  I’m speechless.

H/T to Off the Bench for calling our attention to this miraculous achievement.
