Danielle Kang makes 2 aces and wins 2 cars in 8 days

Danielle Kang's going to need a bigger garage. The third-year LPGA player will have a pair of cars coming home with her after sinking a pair of holes-in-one in back-to-back tournaments.

On Friday in Taipei, Taiwan, the two-time U.S. Women's Amateur champion made her second ace, using a 7-iron at the 158-yard 17th hole in the second round of the LPGA Taiwan Championship. Her prize for this hole-in-one? An Audi A6 T2.0.

"I was actually thinking about a hole-in-one, because I've been touching that car," Kang said afterward. "I really wanted the car. It was right to left. So, I wanted to aim a little right of it, but then I caught it OK. It hit the fringe, like the collar, and it just kicked straight in and just rolled, tracked all the way into the hole."

The 22-year-oldĀ made her first ace in eight days in the opening roundĀ of the Blue Bay LPGA tournament in China, sinking her tee shot to the 155-yard 17th hole at the Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Course with an 8-iron to win a Buick LaCrosse.

Kang now has three aces on the LPGA season, tying the mark for most in a season.
