Two in two months on the same hole with the same club

On the 8th of August 2011 during a club competition at St.Ives (Hunts) Golf Club I managed to ace the 179 yard par 3 third using a 6 iron. The reaction was of complete astonishment as the ball bounced 10 foot short took two bounces and rolled into the hole.
Then on the 22nd October playing in an annual club match versus Cambridge University, me and my playing partner stepped onto the third tee. My opponent looked at me and said how badly he had played the hole in the morning 18 holes whilst we waited for the group in front to finish off the hole. I then told him about my hole in one which I had scored just two months prior and said to him actually the pin was in that exact position. My opponent then said how he had never seen a hole in one before and how he would love to see one.
Then what happened, I stepped up hit a 6 iron again and put it into the hole with the exact same shot. Surreal moment or what? We then had to take a few seconds to take in what had actually just happened, or did we both just imagine it! Consequently, he then hit his shot to 10 foot and rolled the putt in for a 2 and lost the hole! A completely ridiculous moment which without a doubt I will never forget!!!
