Australian Andrew Dodt has become the first man in European Tour history to record two holes-in-one in the same round.

The 27-year-old achieved the feat on the 11th and 16th holes at the Nordea Masters in Stockholm on Friday.

It helped Dodt card 65 to make the cut and finish two-under-par, 11 shots behind leader Matteo Manassero.

Dodt told the European Tour website: "I can't get my head around it. I'm pretty proud to be the first one to do it."

He was given a box of champagne by the tournament sponsors and continued: "The shot at the 11th kick-started things. I didn't putt very well today so I'm glad I was able to hole with a long club."

Scotland's Peter Whiteford, 32, remains in contention after he shot a nine-under-par second round of 63 to finish three shots behind Manassero, who won the PGA Championship at Wentworth last week.

Welshman Jamie Donaldson, 37, is six shots off the pace while Northern Irishman Darren Clarke missed the cut.
