London, Mar 19(ANI): Teenage British golfer Jamie Brittain has defied odds estimated at up to 67,000,000-1 to ace two holes-in-one during the same round at Shropshire's Wrekin Golf Club.

Brittain notched up his aces on both the 12th and 17th holes, described by officials at the 600-member club as "very, very unusual".

The 19-year-old amateur golfer, who works part-time at another course, said his remarkable feat, witnessed by a workmate, was missed by his grandfather, who had retired to the clubhouse part-way round the course.

"It was quite a weird feeling when it happened on the 12th and then for it to happen again on the 17th was just unbelievable," The Telegraph quoted Brittain, as saying.

Meanwhile, Wrekin's club captain, Peter Buchanan, was equally surprised over the achievement, and said: "Jamie's a great golfer - it's a very rare occurrence and we are extremely proud." (ANI)
