As if one wasn’t enough, Methven notches two holes-in-one in same week

The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge was the spot for the pair of aces three days apart

Tina Methven and her two golf partners watched the ball roll down the green and nestle into the cup.

“When it went in, all we could do was scream,” Methven said with a laugh.

It was the fourth par-3 hole-in-one for Methven, 55, who first picked up golf clubs at the age of 4.

What’s even more remarkable is that it was her second ace in three days on The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge course in July. The first one occurred on July 10 with a 6-iron on hole 17 in a practice round for the Ladies Invitational, and the next one happened on July 13 with an 8-iron on hole 9 (which she also aced five years ago) in the invitational. Julie Meador and Annette Seydel were witnesses to the whole deal as Methven’s partners during those two rounds.

To add a golf-ball-sized cherry on top of the whole scenario is that Methven’s husband, John, 49, also aced the 17th hole at Snoqualmie Ridge a year before to the day as Tina’s magical shot. Later that day, a notice of the ace popped up in his Facebook feed to trigger the memory.

“I couldn’t be happier for her. She loves to play golf and it’s amazing to have a hole-in-one (or two),” said John, who noted that the couple have been Club at Snoqualmie Ridge members for 18 years.

John calculated the chances of Tina having two holes-in-one in the same week and the results landed on 1-in-27 million.

While hole spotting on No. 13 on July 13, John’s phone “just blew up” with texts about the second ace, he laughed.

“I thought they were joking with me — I was in shock,” he said. “Believe it or not, on Friday the 13th.”

Added Tina: “I was on a high for the next four holes.”

Tina knew she unleashed a good shot on the first ace, but the trio couldn’t see the ball enter the cup since the pin was down on the left side. With the pin placed on the left of the green just above the rise in the green, they had an ideal view of the ball’s journey on the second ace (the pin sat in the same spot as Tina’s previous hole-in-one on No. 9).

Tina began golfing as a youth with her dad on the former Brookside and Tall Chief courses in Woodinville and Fall City, respectively, where her mom ran the club restaurants.

She said it’s quite a feat to nail a hole-in-one, let alone two in the same week.

“You can’t expect it every time. It’s been nice,” said Tina, who plays the Snoqualmie course about twice a week.
