PIERRE, S.D. — Two young brothers from Pierre are being credited with sinking back-to-back holes-in-one at the city's Hillsview Golf Course.


Nine-year-old Alex Rowe and his 11-year-old brother, Josh, are celebrating aces on the 148-yard 14th hole on Monday.

The brothers and their father, Bert, witnessed Josh's tee shot go in the cup. No one saw Alex's tee shot go in, but two golfers who played through after his shot said later that they saw the ball in the cup when they reached the green.

The National Hole in One Registry puts the odds of two golfers from the same group acing the same hole at 17 million to 1.
