A junior golfer from Thailand has made golfing history this week by scoring a hole-in-one and an albatross in an international tournament.

Conor Kelly, a Year 12 student at Bangkok Patana School in Bangkok was playing in the final round of the American Junior Golf Association’s (AJGA) Junior Golf Hub Championship in the US. He made the hole-in-one and an albatross on consecutive holes, a rare achievement in any golfing tournament. The 16-year-old aced the 198-yard, par-3 eighth hole for his first hole-in-one, and then holed a second shot from 220 yards on the par-5 ninth hole for the albatross.

The American Junior Golf Association posted Conor's photo with his scorecard on Twitter saying, "Is this the greatest feat in the history of golf?!".

And Conor’s school’s Facebook page said: “Year 12 student Conor Kelly just made golf history! Way to go Conor!”
