Aces hit on consecutive swings

RANCHO BERNARDO, Calif. -- Two golfers at a San Diego area
country club drew a most unlikely pair of aces.

Charles T. White nailed a hole-in-one on the 9th hole Sunday at
Bernardo Heights Country Club. Next up in the foursome was Kitty
Tinker, who matched it.

The players' reaction? White says "Disbelief is a good word."

A spokesman for the club confirmed the consecutive aces Monday.

A 2000 Golf Digest study calculated the odds of two golfers in
the same foursome acing the same hole at 17 million to one.

The club gives players a round of free drinks for each time a
hole-in-one is hit. This time, there were two rounds.
