Kent golfer bags hole-in-one double

Toman enjoys ‘extremely surreal’ experience of two aces in two days at Trump course in Aberdeen

By Chris Doyle

Most golfers dream of the day they will get a hole-in-one - but imagine getting two holes in one in the same weekend.

That’s exactly what Adam Toman did over the Easter break on a visit to Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire.

An ace at the 178-yard 13th hole, pictured below, with an 8-iron on Saturday was followed by yet another hole-in-one the very next day on the 180-yard 16th hole, this time using a 6-iron.

The 32-year-old from Kent, who plays off scratch, made the trip to Scotland’s North East for the holiday weekend but couldn’t have predicted the good luck that would come his way.

“It was extremely surreal,” said Toman. “To get a hole-in-one is the ultimate aim in golf and to get two in the one weekend, in my mind, is just ridiculous. I was a little bit speechless.”

Toman, though, is no stranger to the feeling of bagging an ace.

UNFORGETTABLE

“These were actually my seventh and eighth holes-in-one,” he added. “Without a doubt, these were the best. The other ones have been on local parkland courses, so to go up to Trump International and say I got a hole-in-one, let alone two holes-in-one, is just unbelievable.”

It capped off an unforgettable weekend for Adam as he shot a two-under 70 on the Saturday, followed by an amazing six-under 66 on the Sunday.

“It was my second best score in a round of golf and probably at one of the hardest courses I’ve played,” he said. “I went to Trump International with no expectations, knowing it was going to be a difficult course, so to walk away with a total score after 36 holes of eight-under-par was absolutely amazing. I could not have wished for a better weekend.”

A Trump International spokeswoman said: “A hole-in-one is pretty special for any golfer but two in one weekend is truly amazing. We see only a handful of holes-in-one across the entire year so to have one person shoot two in one weekend really is spectacular.”
