Golf Rarity: Susan Vincent Of Trenton C.C. Nets Two Aces In Same Round

Susan Vincent and her husband, Peter, members of the Trenton Country Club, played golf on Friday, July 15, thinking it would be a normal round of golf like all those other times they’ve played together over the past 25 years.

It turned out to be anything but.

Susan became one of 18 women in the history of golf to claim two aces in the same round to the tune of odds estimated at 67 million to one. It happened at Samoset Country Club in Rockport, Me.

“It still hasn’t sunk in,” Vincent said, still giddy five days later. “I said ‘This is too much for one day.’ I didn’t know what to do.”

She has recorded her legacy with the National Hole-in-One Registry.

“I had no idea how rare it was, this is crazy, Peter is an eight handicap and he has zero aces,” she said.

The couple, who live in Langhorne, Pa., and have a second home in Sea Isle City, N.J., have two timeshares in the Rockport area where Susan’s father resided. Susan is a native of the Boston area and graduated Western New England College.

The first ace of the day came on the uphill par-3, 115-yard No. 5 hole, using a seven wood.

“My husband said he would have told me it was too much club. From the tee, you can’t see the green, but there is a pool in sight of the green and a group of about 50 were standing around and started screaming. Some other people on the path behind also saw it go in and started yelling. It was a very bizarre moment,” she stated.

The second ace of the day came on the par-3, 128-yard No. 13 , 128 as Susan used a three wood.

“I didn’t ask him about that. But I had retired the ball from the first ace and reached in the bag for a ball and just grabbed a men’s ball instead of my normal ladies ball.

“I actually did see the second hole-in-one go in on No. 13. It was only 125 yards away, and a more level hole, with water to the left. The course was really busy that day and there were men waiting on the tee box 190 yards away and they saw it and started screaming,” she said.

“The only thing I can think of that might have made a difference was that I went hiking day before and my body was tired and my swing was very quiet. I was very close to my father-in-law Bud Vincet, who passed away in 2011. Maybe it was his divine intervention.”

There is one catch to the story. Susan, a 30 handicapper, still has yet to break 100. Even with the two aces, she turned in a 101 no thanks to a nine, an eight and some sevens, not to mention those two eagle ones.
