Lonnie Whitener took his son golfing on Father's Day. The Houston Chronicle says they arrived at the sixth hole of a course in Richmond, Texas, and Whitener hit a hole in one. Zach, 13, teed off and also had a hole in one. The odds of that happening were about one in 17 million.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Lonnie Whitener took his son golfing on Father's Day. The Houston Chronicle says they arrived at the sixth hole of a course in Richmond, Texas and Mr. Whitener hit a hole in one, dropping his ball in the cup with a single shot from 115 yards away. Maybe his son was impressed, maybe inspired, 13-year-old Zach teed off and also had a hole in one. We're told the odds of that happening were about 1-in-17 million.

It's MORNING EDITION.
