MUSCATINE, Iowa — Luck doesn't even to begin to describe what happened to golfer Ted Kemp.

Kemp, a 12-handicapper, knocked in holes-in-one on back-to-back par 3s at the Muscatine Municipal Golf Course last Monday.

Kemp used a pitching wedge to sink his tee shot on the 3rd hole from 130 yards out. Then, after remarking to his playing partners that it would be something if he repeated his feat, he did just that.

'Pretty unreal'
Kemp grabbed an 8-iron and nailed a hole-in-one from 182 yards out on the 8th hole.

Kemp says the feat was more luck than skill, calling it "pretty unreal." He finished the day with a 78.

A study by Golf Digest in 2000 said that the odds of getting two holes-in-one in the same round is 67 million to one.
