All Kathy Kessel could think about was that round of golf last summer.

The day had started out fairly ordinary.

Then, Phil bent a driver over his thigh and Blake spiked his putter into a green.

It was embarrassing stuff, said the boys' mother.

But it was typical behaviour from two brothers who were competing for a lower score and who hated to lose.

Rita Schenn has similar stories about Luke and Brayden.

Like the time when the two brothers came into the house bruised and bloodied after a game of backyard hockey turned physical. Or when Luke put Brayden "on his butt" during a Western Hockey League game several years ago.

"Brotherly love," she said.
