Niagara Gazette — As if the odds weren't high enough to get an individual hole-in-one, imagine the odds of two brothers achieving the feat just eleven days apart.
That's what happened to Marc and Brian Stott.
Marc Stott, a 30-year-old native of Niagara Falls now living in Auburn, NY, achieved the feat on June 15 at Dutch Hollow Country Club in Auburn, on the 191-yard Hole 16 using a 5-iron. Witnessing the feat were Brian Stott, Robert Stott and Chris Cottrell.
Brian Stott, age 29, achieved an ace on June 26 at Beaver Island State Park in Grand Island, using a 3-iron to get his hole-in-one on the 215-yard Hole 15. Erik O'Grady witnessed the ace.
The holes-in-one were the first for both brothers.
