[April 18, 2009]  ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Brendon Todd has made Nationwide Tour history by making a hole-in-one at the same hole two days in a row at the Athens Regional Foundation Classic.

The former Georgia All-American aced the 147-yard 17th hole for the second straight day on Friday, using an 8-iron during the second round at the Jennings Mill Country Club course.

During Thursday's opening round, Todd used a 7-iron when the hole played 157 yards and he finished with a 4-under 68. He is 5-under for the $550,000 event.

Todd is the first player in the 20-year history of the tour to ace the same hole twice in the same tournament.

The last player to ace the same hole twice in the same tournament was Graham Marsh in the first and third rounds of the 2004 Senior British Open.
