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" 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!!!

    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad.
