GOOD NEWS Husband & Wife Score Back-to-Back Holes-in-One!
Here's a one in a million story for you.
Actually more like one in 26 million.
A Michigan couple says they scored back-to-back holes-in-one last weekend.
Tony and Janet Blundy recorded this amazing feat Sunday on the 16th hole at Ledge Meadows Golf Course in Grand Ledge.
Tony's perfect shot came first, from 135 yards with a 7-iron. Not to be outdone, his wife followed with an ace from the women's tee box 110 yards away.
Before her shot, Janet joked to Tony that, "You're gonna be really mad at me when I put mine in," according to the Lansing State Journal.
The couple says they golf at least 18 holes together each week.
Luckily for the Blundys, there were independent witnesses who saw it all happen. Tony acknowledged that without witnesses, no one would have ever believed them.
Indeed, the odds of this happening are off the charts.
The Journal reported:
According to research done by golf contest prize insurer National Hole-in-One Association in 2013, the odds of an amateur golfer getting a hole-in-one are 12,500-to-1. For two amateurs each making one in the same round as a foursome, the odds climb to 1.3 million-to-1. For two members of a foursome to ace the same hole in the same round, they skyrocket to 26 million-to-1.
But in a twosome? On consecutive shots? They easily would be more than double the foursome odds, a claims adjuster for the National Hole-in-One Association said Wednesday.
What about a husband and wife at the same hole on consecutive shots? The adjustor couldn't even compute the odds, simply describing them as "astronomical."
