Amateur golfer hits three holes-in-one on the same day

    (CNN)Amateur Ali Gibb enjoyed a trip to the golf course that Tiger Woods could only dream of earlier this week, hitting three holes-in-one on the same day.

    The 51-year-old managed the incredible feat while successfully defending her championship title at the Croham Hurst Golf Club in Surrey, south of London.
    She hit her first ace on the par-three fifth hole that morning during the 36-hole tournament, before repeating the trick at the same hole during the afternoon.
      Gibb completed her incredible hat-trick at the par-three 11th and admitted she's still struggling to come to terms with what happened.
      "It was a crazy day and what happened was quite unbelievable, it took its time to sink in," she told CNN Sport.
      "Most people might spend all their lives trying to get one, I got three in five hours."
      Club pro Adam Aram said he was impressed when Gibb carded the first hole-in-one but by the by the time she sank the third it was "unbelievable."
      "I said to her what have you been drinking at lunch time, you can't have three holes-in-one on the same day -- two's enough," Aram told CNN Sport.
      "I think after the second win, she was too excited to concentrate and then she had a third -- I don't think she could quite work our what was happening, neither of us could."
      Gibb's scorecard showing two holes-in-one at fifth and another at the 11th.
      Before her unforgettable Tuesday, Gibb had registered three holes-in-one in her entire time playing golf -- her first being at the Atlantic Beach Golf Estate in South Africa.
      "I did some part-time consultancy work for a friend who runs a travel company and the course overlooked the bay," she said.
      "I was thinking, 'that's it I'm done -- I've done my life hole-in-one.
      "But now I have managed to double that -- which was completely unexpected."
