Brothers Get Back-to-Back Holes in One29 May 2013
Astoundingly, on May 27 two brothers, ages 11 and 9, got back-to-back holes in one. Playing on the Hillsview Golf Course in Pierre, they sank the 14th hole from 148 yards and 128 yards, respectively. Josh and Alex Rowe were, as one might expect, elated.
Pure elation? Not exactly. First a note of competition from the older brother: “[W]hen Alex found his ball in the hole and realized he had also shot a hole-in-one, Josh said he was a little disappointed, at first, before he found out just how rare it was for two brothers to shoot an ace consecutively on the same hole” (Argus Leader, 29 May 2013, 7A).
