Colorado golfers REALLY beat the odds

GYPSUM - Getting a hole-in-one can be a once in a lifetime experience for most golfers, if they're lucky. Two golfers getting a hole-in-one on the same day and the same course is very unusual.

But two golfers, getting a hole-in-one on the same course on the same day and the same hole, one after the other, is a golf story these guys will never forget.

It happened to Fred Kessler and Dan Eby at the Gypsum Creek Golf Course on April 19, the 150 yard 17th hole.

The chances of this happening isn't one in a million, it's one in 17 million.

"We both walked up together to get our balls and looked in the hole and saw two balls," Kessler told 9NEWS. "I was like, this never happens."

Eby decided to test his luck and buy a lottery ticket, although it produced only a dollar prize. But both men are keeping their lucky golf balls and savoring the moment.
