Jarrod Lyle makes two aces at Challenge charity golf day

Two groups playing in the annual Robert Allenby Golf Day added a 1 to their card yesterday, thanks to Jarrod Lyle.

This is a great story. Jarrod Lyle was helping out at the annual Robert Allenby Golf Day that raises money for Challenge – supporting kids with cancer when he nailed two aces!

Lyle was hitting golf balls for groups that arrived at the par-3 15th at Yarra Yarra Golf Club in Melbourne. As per many charity golf days, golfers pay for the professional to tee off for them to contribute to their round – and more often than not, it’s closer to the hole than their own tee shots.

Early in the day, Lyle made a hole-in-one with one of his tee shots and tweeted:

Later that day Lyle tweeted this, another hole-in-one for another group:

Golf Australia reported the entertaining details of the second hole-in-one:

Lyle, in fundraising mode, was taking bets that nobody in the group would hit one nearer the pin. One player in the group hit it to 2m, the next inside a metre, prompting what Lyle described as “a fair bit of lip”.

“They were giving it to me, then I just hit and it somehow weaved between their balls and went in – we couldn’t believe it,” Lyle said.
“It cost ‘em a few bucks, but they absolutely loved it!”
