Norm Hicks pulled off a doubly difficult golfing feat recently, scoring two double eagles (completing a par-five in two strokes) in the last two months.

Hicks notched both double eagles on the par-5 18th hole at Three Eagles Golf Course on Seymour Johnson Air Forse Base.

The first one, on April 10, saw Hicks hole out an 185-year approach shot with a six-iron. Lightning struck twice on June 20 when Hicks rolled in his approach shot fromn 165 yards away with a seven-iron.

Hicks shot at 76 and a 64, respectively, when he accomplished the double eagles.

Among those witnessing the feat were Rocky Norris for the first double eagle and Dan Daniels for the second one.
