Duke Alumnus Olson Sinks Improbable Hole-In-One

If you watch SportsCenter, you probably saw this billiards-like hole-in-one from Saturday's action at the Canadian Open. But you might not have known that Leif Olson, the golfer celebrating the ace and climbing into his brand-new BMW, golfed for Duke from 1999 to 2003.

Olson, who played for the late Rod Myers, holds the school record for 152 career rounds played and ranks second in under-par rounds, third in rounds in the 60s and fourth in stroke average. His 12-under in 2002 at The Nelson is the second-lowest score in Duke history.

He does, after all, have a flair for the dramatic.
