Two high schoolers make ace on same day with same club off cart path

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

Hole-in-one stories usually come with a hint of jealously, because the majority of golfers have never had the pleasure of writing down "1" on their scorecard (raises hand begrudgingly), but it's hard to get upset when you hear the following story out of Fargo.

Two freshman golfers from Fargo Davies High School made aces on the same hole using the same club on the same day, and while that is absolutely incredible, you'll never guess the added wrinkle to the already strange occurrence.

Both Brandon Winter and Collin Larson bounced their shots off a cart path before they went in for the ace.

The coincidence of Winter's and Larson's shots both falling is almost too much to believe, but there was another common thread between the pair of aces.

Both Winter and Larson almost had identical shots. Each golfer had their shots go short and bounce off the cart path onto the green before finding the bottom of the cup.

“When I saw it bounce up and start rolling, I was just hoping I would get close,” Larson said. “Then when it dropped in, I couldn't believe it.”

Both youngsters hit 9-irons on No. 4, a 140-yard par-3, and both had them bounce short, roll up and go in for the ace.

The odds of an ace from around 150 yards are sketchy, but the go-to figure is 10,000 to 1, so I'm sure that numbers takes a huge jump when you're talking about two golfers on the same team doing it on the same day with the same strange assist.

I don't know the Fargo boys, but if I ever see them, they're buying me a drink.
