Default 2 aces...back to back

So a guy at leagues last night hit the ace finally. But then he aced the very next hole and it brought up the topic: Exactly how rare is it? He tried to look it up and Rene Espinoza (PDGA# 7595) aced 2 consecutive holes at the 1997 Tri-Cities tournament in Eastern Washington.

I've done it once on back-to-back short holes before but never during a league night or tournament round. My buddy did the same a year later at the same course (Twin Creek DGC, Germantown, OH). How about you guys?

My wife and I hit back to back aces on the same hole but I've never seen someone hit 2 in a row. That's pretty awesome.

a few weeks ago we had a $440 ace pot, two guys hit aces next to each other at the same time on neighboring holes and they split the pot. The question came up, if either one of them hit a 2nd ace in the round, should it be split 66/33 instead of 50/50??? Valid arguement.

It should absolutely be split 66/33.

I know a fellow who aced the same hole two Saturdays in a row. And in answer to Jerry's question, I'd say 66/33.

My friend hit hole 7 at Madeline Bertrand in Niles, MI and I followed up with an ace on hole 8 the very next throw. Neither were very long, under 220', but it was badass nonetheless.

Now two aces in a row for the same guy... I think I'd pee myself.

I've seen, and even been part of, two people acing the same hole with consecutive throws.

One thing that reduces the odds of one person acing consecutive holes even futher, is the frequency of ace-able, or easily-ace-able, holes being back-to-back. While there are some short courses with lots of ace opportunities, a lot of courses will follow an ace-run hole with one that's too long, or otherwise laid out so that an ace is almost impossible.

I agree completely. I know some really good DGers who only have a handful of aces (or none, in some cases), then guys like me who have a bunch because of the course I play most often is a short one.

On that note, I bet the Ace Races have netted some 2-in-a-row, or even 3-in-a-row occurrences.

If we go with this rule then the final 1% goes to me for all three way ace splits.
