There is luck.

There is blind luck.

There is Auburn football.

And there is what Bob Hullender did recently.

According to Play San Antonio Golf Hullender made a two holes-in-one and a double eagle all in the same week.

On Friday, Jan. 3, he aced No. 16 at the La Loma Course at Fort Sam Houston with a 7-iron from 158 yards; Monday, Jan. 6, he put down the second ace at Brackenridge Park on the 138-yard 10th with a 9-iron.

The day after the second ace, Tuesday, Jan. 7, [Hullender] double-eagled from 215 yards using a 3-iron loft hydrid."

When the four-time senior state amateur champ was asked where this accomplishment ranked he was coy with his answer.

"In just playing an every-day round of golf, it’s got to be up there."

Uh yeah, I'd say so.
