Father and son eagle same hole

Holes-in-ones are always a popular item to read about or a memory to cherish. You don’t normally get the same kind of feeling on eagles being made on par 4s and par 5s.

But the end result is still the same, and sometimes the accomplishment is pretty noteworthy. Take June 30 for instance, when a father and son made eagles — on the same hole in the same group — at Clinton Country Club.

Bill and Brian Carlson of Madison both pitched in second shots for eagle on the par-4 16th hole.


“It’s pretty cool,” Bill Carlson said. “We were partners (in a match). Our opponents were just staring at each other. It was pretty funny.”
