Father and Son Record Holes-In-One on Father's Day

RICHMOND, Texas A father-son duo from South Texas showed no handicap when they stepped up to a par-3 tee and each shot a hole-in-one on Father's Day.

Lonnie Whitener, 57, told the Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/13VlAHF ) for Thursday's editions that his 115-yard drive using a gap wedge on the sixth hole at River Pointe Golf Club in Richmond struck the flag stick and dropped in the hole. Up stepped 13-year-old Zach Whitener, whose shot from 100 yards using a 6-iron landed near the pin and rolled gently in.

The U.S. Golf Association does not keep records of holes-in-one, but the National Hole-in-One Registry says the chances of two players acing the same hole in the same round are one in 17 million.

Two groups of players witnessed the feat and joined the celebration.
