Go play the Lottery after this round

Golfer hits two holes-in-one in same round
Gary Choyka did something that had his friends offering an obvious piece of advice:
“They all said I should go play the lottery,” he said.
Choyka was set to cover one round of drinks at the LPGA's International Course after a recent hole-in-one, but due to what he did he yelled, “Hey, barkeep, make it a double!”
Choyka’s ace on the par-3 third hole at LPGA’s Jones Course in Daytona Beach, Florida, was matched a couple of hours later with yet another hole-in-one on the par-3 14th.
“You talk about experiences in golf. It has to be one of the best,” Choyka said.
Odds of an amateur acing a hole are generally listed at 12,500-to-1. Odds against that second ace in the same round: 67 million-to-one.
Odds of a professional golfer making an ace are roughly 10 times better than an amateur. A second ace by a pro? In the entire history of the PGA Tour, it’s happened just three times, most recently by Brian Harman five years ago.
It’s the second time it’s happened in the Daytona Beach area in the past year. Port Orange golfer Jerry Bass did it at Crane Lakes Golf Club in Port Orange, Florida, last February.
Choyka’s aces both came with a 7-iron. No. 3 was playing 152 yards slightly into the wind, while the 14th was playing the opposite direction at 162 yards.
