Hometeam Allstar: Matthew Padgett
RICHMOND (WTVR) – 16 year old Matthew Padgett of Matoaca got a birthday present that will be hard to top.
Padgett aced back-to-back holes at the First Tee course of Chesterfield. His first hole-in-one was on the 80 yard 7th hole with a wedge. Then he walked up to the 130-yard 8th hole and did it again, this time with a 9-iron.
The odds of getting two straight holes-in-one are over one in 150 million, or just short of the odds of winning the MegaMillions drawing.
Matthew is in the highest certification level at First Tee, appropriately called the Ace level, and has been in the program for over 6 years. He is a sophomore at Matoaca where he is consistently on the honor roll. He is also close to becoming and Eagle Scout
