Cousins sink consecutive holes-in-one

A golf game turned into a huge celebration for two cousins in Ohio.

Last Saturday William and Cody Robbins were out with their usual foursome at Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, Ohio.

The par 3 fifth hole was anything but usual.

"All of us debating on what to hit because of wind... Decided to hit 5 iron, looked good, next thing we knew it disappeared, blew my mind," William Robbins said.

"We had a huge celebration after he hit it and I'm shaking, I said to the group - how am I supposed to follow that. But I hit it, strike it pure, it just flew in the hole," said Cody Robbins.

Four witnesses shared in the celebration.

"I told him we just saw something special," said golfing buddy and witness Bronson Mallett.

So the odds of an average golfer making a hole-in-one are about one in 12,000. Two consecutive holes in one?  According to Golf Digest, that number is one in 17 million.

"This is something we'll never forget," said Cody Robbins.
