Two holes-in-one, and more
Ruth Day shot two holes-in-one in a single outing at the Whitley Bay Golf Club in North Tyneside, England.
Most amateur golfers are lucky if they shoot a single hole-in-one over the course of many years. But 64-year-old Ruth Day shot two holes-in-one in a single outing at the Whitley Bay Golf Club in North Tyneside, England. She shot her first ace on the 149-yard third hole, a par 3, and then another on the 161-yard 13th, also a par 3. “A hole-in-one itself is pretty amazing,” she said. “But I couldn’t believe it when I did the same thing 10 holes further on.”
Brothers, separated as babies, are reunited
Two employees of the same company in Waldoboro, Maine, have turned out to be brothers separated 35 years ago. In July, when Randy Joubert of Dow Furniture was assigned a new delivery partner, Gary Nisbet, customers began remarking on their uncanny resemblance. That spurred Joubert, who had been put up for adoption as a baby, to dig up his birth records. He shared the information with Nisbet, who confirmed they had the same parents. “This only happens once in a lifetime. And it happens in Waldoboro,” said Nisbet. “Nothing good ever happens in Waldoboro.”
