Ernie Anderson, 63, made his seventh hole-in-one Saturday morning at Broken Arrow’s Forest Ridge Golf Club. But that wasn’t the source of his excitement.
About 30 seconds later, his groupmate Mike Andrist landed a hole-in-one, too.
"The odds of back to back guys having hole-in-ones in the same group is astronomical," Anderson said.
According to the National Hole-In-One Registry, the odds of two players from the same foursome acing the same hole is 17 million to 1.
"That’s the part I can’t believe at all," said Andrist, 57, whose hole-in-one on Saturday was his fifth.
"But you see all kinds of weird stuff in golf, and some of it’s good," he said.
The golfers made the holes-in-one at the 158-yard, No. 13 hole.
The group didn’t realize just how strange it was, though, until they went over to the hole to be sure both landed inside.
