Two players make albatross in one day

(AP) - The rarest shot in golf happened twice on Friday on two tours.

Joost Luiten made an albatross on the par-5 10th hole at Durban Country Club when he holed out with a 7-iron from 248 yards in the Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa. Later in the day, and halfway around the world, James Hahn holed out from 191 yards with a 6-iron on the par-5 ninth hole at Waialae Country Club in the Sony Open in Hawaii.

There was only one albatross on the European Tour last year. There were only two on the PGA Tour.

Hahn said it was the second albatross of his career. He made a 2 on a par 5 in Mexico when he was on the Nationwide Tour.

"Been there, done that," Hahn said.
