Terry Tiller did not buy a lottery ticket last week, but perhaps he should have.
The 64-year-old from Lyons accomplished something that is more rare than a major league baseball pitcher throwing a no-hitter — and he did it twice.
In the span of nine days, Tiller made two hole-in-ones at Big Oak Golf Course — the majority of golfers go their entire lives without recording one ace.
Tiller’s first 1 came in the Big Oak club championship on the par-3 seventh hole. From about 175 yards out, Tiller swung his 5-iron and the ball rolled in for the third hole-in-one of his golfing career.
