Watch 98.1FM KMBZ's Dana Wright's reaction to hitting a hole in one on the 7th hole at the Country Club of Leawood Sunday. Dana said on her twitter feed that this was the second time she had hit a hole in one, using same brand of ball on same hole.

A Kansas City radio host just hit her second hole-in-one — on the same hole with the same kind of ball as her first, she says.

Dana Wright, a daytime host on 98.1 FM KMBZ, used a nine iron to sink the roughly 120-yard shot, Wright’s husband, Kris Ketz wrote on Facebook. It was on hole 7 at the Country Club of Leawood, Wright said.

“Are you serious?” Wright says on the video. “Did that just go in?”

The video shows Wright scream and laugh as she peers into the hole to confirm it, with Ketz — an anchor on KMBC Channel 9 — providing color analysis.

“That, my friends, is a hole-in-one,” Ketz said. “Her second on this hole.”

Wright used a Callaway Golf ball to sink both shots and only uses the brand because “it’s a superstition thing,” she says.

In a tweet, Wright shows the ball resting in the hole.

At the end of the video, Wright said she didn’t get a plaque for her first hole-in-one.

“I want my plaque,” she said. “I never got a plaque the first time.”

Now it looks like she’ll get one from Callaway Golf.
