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!!!

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
