According to statistics, the chances of getting a hole-in-one are about 1 in 12,000.
The odds of getting a double-eagle?
One in a million.
Every year, Mountain Dell records about five or six double-eagles, according to head pro Mike Brimley, which might be more than your average course since there are two 18-hole courses at Mountain Dell.
So it was something special last Monday when there were two double eagles at Mountain Dell on the same day. Mike Rose got the first one at the Canyon No. 4 hole on the Canyon Course. The second one, a few hours later, was extra special because it was made Andrew Sorensen, who happens to be my 17-year-old son.
After a 250-yard drive, Andrew knocked his 4-hybrid 230 yards, up the hill and right into the hole.
Andrew, who plays for the Highland High golf team, may just be the first person in history to ever get a double-eagle before even getting an eagle.
