Friends hit back-to-back aces at Canadian golf course

The odds of hitting a hole-in-one? About 12,000 to 1. The odds of two players hitting a hole-in-one on the same hole? According to the National Hole-In-One Registry, it's about 17 million to 1.

Gerry Hanke and Bruce Baier might want to go buy themselves a lotto ticket after beating those odds.

According to the Saskatoon StarPhoenix, the Canadian golf buddies made their aces in back-to-back fashion on the 128-yard, par-3 eighth hole at Moonlake Golf and Country Club in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in Canada.

Hanke used a wedge to sink the first ace, followed by Baier, who, according to the report, was a bit intimidated hitting a shot following an ace. He rose to the occasion though and one-hopped his shot into the hole.
