It's golf's most thrilling feat – a hole-in-one.
Even professional golfers – the best of the best – celebrate with hugs, high-fives and a kiss for a lucky bounce.
So when Eden Prairie's Wendy Anderson aced hole 17 on her home course of Olympic Hills on Friday, it's no wonder she found it tough to keep her composure.
"We all screamed, jumped up and down and hugged and carried on," Anderson said.
On Tuesday morning, Wendy was back out on the course with a friend in need of a playing partner.
She stepped up onto the tee box at hole 12 – 105 yards away – pulled out her 8-iron and did the incredible.
She drained another hole-in-one.
"We didn't scream on this one. We were in shock," she said. "We didn't want to disturb anyone else."
Anderson says she has been playing golf for 15 years, maybe 3 or 4 rounds per week.
Jeff Otto, the lead golf instructor at Olympic Hills, says there is an average of ten to 14 aces at the course on a given year.
This year there have been three. Two of which belong to Anderson.
