Brothers Craig and Chad Warren of Mayfield, had a pretty great day on the golf course today (Feb. 27) at Benton Golf and Country Club. On successive shots on the 147 yard hole #3, both made holes-in-one. Craig and Chad were using Titleist Pro V1 balls. Craig hit his hole-in-one with a Callaway XR 7-iron and Chad’s club of choice was a TaylorMade RocketBall 8-iron. Witnesses to the double hole-in-one were Larry Camp, Leroy Hemsley, Donnie Crass and Harold Humphrey.

According to a study by Golf Digest magazine from 2013, the chances of an amateur making a hole-in-one is 12,500 to 1 and the chances of two amateurs in a foursome making an ace on the same day and on the same hole are 26,000,000 to 1 odds.

The two hole-in-one balls lie in the cup of hole #3 at Benton Golf and Country Club.
