Virginia Tech Coach Carol Robertson Makes 2 Aces in 3 Holes

Most golfers go our entire lives without a hole-in-one. But Carol Robertson recently made two - not just in the same round, but in the first five holes of her round!

Robertson is the head coach of the women's golf team at Virginia Tech, a team that Robertson is putting together for its first-ever season, the 2015-16 season. The Hokies decided in 2013 to add the program, and its first tournament begins Sept. 20 at the Lady Paladin Invitational at Furman. Robertson came to Virginia Tech after a couple years as the head coach at Old Dominion. As a competitor, Robertson played collegiately at James Madison and won the Virginia Amateur in 2006.

But with the university on Spring Break, Coach Robertson headed south to the warmer climes of Florida. And playing at Celebration Golf Club in Orlando on Monday, Robertson came up aces.

Ace No. 1 happened on the third hole, a 159-yard par-3. Amazingly, it wasn't long until this happened:

Ace No. 2 came just two holes after the first, on the 161-yard fifth hole. Two holes-in-one in her first five holes, two aces within a 3-hole stretch. That's amazing!

And probably a good way to make sure your freshmen listen when you coach 'em up.
