Reeves Barbour does the impossible: 2 holes-in-one in the same round

Oxford publication The Local Voice has a story coming out soon detailing an incredible round of golf by Gov. Haley Barbour's son, Reeves.  The younger Barbour was playing in a tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Manassas, VA, when he aced two holes in the same round.  According to the story:

The tournament headed to the par 3 174-yard ninth hole where Barbour took a 7-iron out of his back and proceeded to one-hop the ball into the hole. Barbour said the caddies and other players in the group congratulated him and gave him high-fives before calling the pro shop so they could remove the flag for a keepsake. The group moved onto the 10th where Barbour scored a four, good enough for par.

Then the walk to the 11th hole, a Par 3 161-yard hollow.

"I hit an 8-iron that flew directly in the hole, kind of like a slam-dunk," he said. "It sounded like a 22-caliber rifle went off when the ball hit the pin."
Vice President Joe Biden was at the golf club when this happened, and is currently trying to find a clear spot on his schedule for a round with Reeves.  Here's a link to a video interview with Barbour the Younger.  Major congratulations, Reeves!
