A local father and son will always remember this past Father's Day because that's when they hit consecutive holes-in-one.

Lonnie Whitener and his son Zach hit those amazing shots Sunday at River Pointe Golf Club in Richmond. Their amazing shots were witnessed by a group playing behind the Whiteners.

"I walked away and I didn't think it was goin' in, then my dad and people behind us yelled it went in. Then I looked back and I didn't see it," Zach Whitener said.

"You know on Father's Day, something like it's just always gonna be with us," Lonnie Whitener said.

Lonnie Whitener said he heard the odds of this happening are about 17 million to one.
