TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Last month I gave a dK Cactus Call to Barb Parker, a Marana winter resident from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who knocked down two holes-in-one in March during the final round of the Ladies Member Guest on the North course at the Gallery Golf Club.

Parker aced the 113-yard Par 3 12th hole and then followed that up by needing just a single shot three holes later at the 131-yard Par 3 15th.

Parker is a member at the Gallery.

The odds on making a hole-in-one in golf are generally thought to be around 13,000-to-1 with the possibility of doing what Parker did and making two in the same round closer to 165,000,000-to-1. Yes that is 165-million.

The holes-in-one were the 3rd and 4th of Barb's career and believed to be the first recorded in the same round ever at The Gallery.

Wednesday I caught up with Barb to find out how she did it.
