Hole in one at Nissan Open

Recommended Posts

How often does a player hit a hole in one in a PGA event? I caught just a little sports news clip on it, but it was not the big headline. Did anyone see it?

I didn't see the actual "live" shot, but saw numerous replays throughout the Sunday broadcast. Rich Beem was the player that hit the shot in Round 3 on Saturday, # 14, a one hopper into the cup. Won himself a new car for his efforts.

Retief Goosen also had an ace on #16 on Friday.

My closest was short by one ball rotation...rolled right up to the cup.......and stopped (180 yd, Par 3). I've never been so mad at my golf ball (and there have been MANY times that I've yelled and cursed at it....it IS the ball's fault for where it goes, right??)

my two closest came near dusk. the fist one i thought felt good. when we got to the green, it was within 2 feet. the second i heard hit the pin. so while it was technicly close, it actually came off the stick about 6 feet. cool.gif

gonna play next week! maybe it'll come then

"gonna play next week! maybe it'll come then" i wish i could throw a snow ball that far! grin.gif

a hole in one isn't that common even for the pros!i think i had heard once that the average for the players was 2 or 3 in a life time.

I have never had one (closest was one foot from the hole), but witnessed one while working one a golf course. I was watching a guy tee-off on a 155 yard par three as I was fixing divots on a tee box. I was directly behind him and his shot was a beauty. The ball went straight at the pin, but hit just past it, but rolled back into the hole because of all the back-spin shocked.gif. The shot was followed by a chorus of shouting, which I am sure was heard by the whole course. Best shot I have ever seen.

One was an 89 yarder at a par 3 course that I bladed/sculled it hit short of green and sliced into the hole.

My other one was legit 205 with a 4 iron at Hiawatha #8.

And my double Eagle was 185 6 iron down wind on #2 at Hiawatha.

I've got two under my belt. I've met two guys who have gotten two in one round of golf. Both legit. One guy used to play for the U and the other was a former State Am champ. That's crazy.

i have never had a hole in one but once when I was younger I was at the tee box ready to give it my all when the greens keeper comes over the hill and we let him do his thing and he changes the hole placement.......I am maybe 12 years old so I just try to get it on the green and wouldn't you know it my ball ends up right on the new piece of sod from the previous hole.....probably the closest I will come to a hole in one!!! i have been inches away but that is a shot I won't forget........It is like when you go to a lake and the locals say "shoulda been here yesterday" but in this case I should have hit the ball right away!!!

I've had two lifetime. Both were to elevated greens; shot looked good, got to the green and we found the ball in the cup! Would love to get one some day that I see go into the hole. Playing in a scramble last year and one of my partners left one hangin' about 1/4" from the cup. If it dropped, we would have finished the tournament in a Jeep as our golfcart! He was pretty bummed, as he's golfed his whole life, and never had one. One week later, his wife (who has played 3 years) knocked one in on a 126 yd. par 3 to add insult to injury!

my father has golfed all his life......he has one to his name but it didn't count as he was playing alone and hitting 2 balls keeping score on each ball........so they are rare as he is a pretty good golfer!!!

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
