On May 15, 2012, Wes Bolyard beat 67-million-to-one odds (according to About.com Golf) by making two holes-in-one in the same round. The unlikely feat occurred while playing at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Arizona. Bolyard aced the third hole (129 yards) and then did it again on the 11th (115 yards).
“It was interesting because I used the same club, a Ping i15 Gap Wedge,” said Bolyard. “But the wind was different for each shot.” On hole number three, Bolyard used a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball then on hole eleven his ace was made with a Srixon Z-Star Tour Yellow. He also plays with two gloves and was wearing Cutters C-Tack glove on his left hand and was wearing a Lynx golf glove on his right hand.
Before carding the two aces that day at Longbow, Bolyard already had five holes-in-one to his credit. And Bolyard’s love for the game goes beyond simply playing the game. He has served for nine years as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic hosted by Longbow, an American Junior Golf Association event. He has also volunteered for more than 15 years at several golf events in the greater Phoenix area.
Bolyard also writes for several publications on golf including Arizona Golfer. Congratulations , Mr. Wes!!
