RANCHO BERNARDO, Calif. (AP) — Two golfers at a San Diego area country club drew a most unlikely pair of aces.
Charles T. White nailed a hole-in-one on the 9th hole Sunday at Bernardo Heights Country Club. Next up in the foursome was Kitty Tinker, who matched it.
The players' reaction? White says "Disbelief is a good word."
A spokesman for the club confirmed the consecutive aces Monday.
A 2000 Golf Digest study calculated the odds of two golfers in the same foursome acing the same hole at 17 million to one.
The club gives players a round of free drinks for each time a hole-in-one is hit. This time, there were two rounds.
