Chris Capo Posts First Double Eagle In Arizona Wildcats History

I have a feeling it might take awhile for the second one to be posted.

Capo, a sophomore from Woodland Hills, Calif., collected a double eagle on the 539-yard, par-5 16th hole at Old Overton Club in Vestavia Hills, Ala. He hit a 3-wood from 246 yards, the ball hopped, hit the pin and dropped in the hole for a deuce.

"I didn't see it (go in) at all," Capo said. "I hit it perfectly and when I walked up to the green and saw where it landed -- it was slightly downhill -- I actually thought it was in the back water. But I walked up to the hole and there it was. It's pretty awesome."

To put this into perspective, the chance of an average golfer sinking a hole-in-one is 1 in 13,000 according to Golf World magazine, while a double eagle is 1 in 1,000,000.

Congrats to Capo, who will now be able the envy of almost every golf pairing he's ever a part of.
