Hole-In-Two For Brothers

"I was very jealous," said the 9-year-old Ponte Vedra Beach resident, after watching his 11-year-old brother, Hanks Massey make a hole-in-one at the third hole of the TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course in the waning twilight of Thursday night.

His answer: knock the ball into the hole on top of big brother. As a result, the Massey boys beat odds only a bit less than scoring all six numbers of the Florida Lottery as they made back-to-back aces during a casual round with their father, PGA Tour marketing vice president Scott Massey.

Hanks and Davis Massey made the first aces of their young golf careers with Callaway balls stamped with the number "3" and ending in the cup, cut in the back left. Hanks used a 9-iron and Davis an 8-iron, with the estimated distance to the hole placed at 103 yards.

Oddly enough, their father has only one hole-in-one in his life - nearly 30 years ago to the day, when he was 13. -

Incredibly rare!
