Nine golf students' synchronized hole in one

Rewarding, unified focus and task accomplished, bravo!  

New York Daily News/Lee Moran, 2/18/13. " Video:  Holy hole in one times nine!  Golfers sink simultaneous putts in same hole.Seniors at North Carolina's Campbell University accomplish neat feat in viral video.  

9 Putts Into One Hole
Hole in one video, noisy 34 seconds 
"Seniors at Campbell University's PGA Golf Management program, in North Carolina, performed the stunt for a student association sponsored contest.

Two cameras captured the action - which has now been seen online more than 12,000 times - from different angles. Students at the private Baptist University said they were thrilled with the feat - which beat the best efforts of the Golf Academy of America in Apopka, Florida.

Seniors in the Sunshine State (Florida) rose to fame last year with a similar stunt, but only managed to sink six shots in a row."

The January competition was to see how many people could line up and make a putt at the same time.  The winner was their senior class with nine people simultaneously sinking a putt. You could call it a hole-in-nine!"

That's nothing. For most of the last decade we had 5 City Councilmembers who would hit the "NO" button at the exact same moment.
