Paul McGinley’s brother had 3 holes-in-one in six days

February has been a great month for Paul McGinley's brother, Michael, who recorded three aces in a six-day stretch.

McGinley, who now lives in the United Arab Emirates, recorded the first in a trio of holes-in-one on Feb. 12 on the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, home to the European Tour's season-ending DP World Tour Championship. It was a 4-iron to the par-3 fourth that kicked things off for the Irishman.

A day later at Dubai Creek, McGinley's home course, he made another hole-in-one at the par-3 fifth hole with a 9-iron.

Four days later, McGinley did it one more time at Dubai Creek with a 9-iron, but this time the ace came at the eighth hole.

For McGinley, who plays to a plus-1 index, the flurry was a long time in coming.

“It is an amazing feeling. I had a hole-in-one when I was 15 years old and haven’t had one since,” McGinley said, according to The National in the U.A.E. “To have three in six days is just incredible and something that I will definitely never forget. Achieving two holes-in-one in two days was something special, however the third really is unbelievable.”
