MONTROSE, Colo. -- Gage Huft scored his first hole in one at the age of 12.

At the Colorado Mesa Invitational, the sophomore from Montana State Billings golfer scored something more difficult:

A double-eagle.

Huft scored his rare shot on the 528-yard, No. 9 hole at the Bridges Golf Club. He went driver, 7-iron, making the second shot from 192 yards out.

"It's a pretty cool feeling,'' said Huft, who is from Kimberly, Idaho. "Everybody dreams of hitting a double-eagle in his lifetime."

Huft shot 72 for the final round.

And MSUB coach Shawn O'Brien was there to witness the shot.

"I didn't even know it was his ball,'' O'Brien said. "Then everybody was high-fiving and a woman said, 'That's your guy.' It was pretty neat."

MSUB finished sixth in the opening tournament of the fall season.
