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!!!

    • Nope can't say I have been sick. I visit my parents in the old folks home so maybe that will be a good test. I may need to find another chunk of two to last me the winter. I kinda enjoy being in the woods and looking for it.
    • Make sure you use shielded cable vs wiring rca ends onto standard 16 gauge wire other wise you will have interference from your other 12 and 120 volt wiring.  More insulation = less btus needed. At the very least I would spray the floor. Going to want to go 30k if you aren’t going to spray foam the walls Depends on location. 30” is optimal. If on the side of the house versus back, I would go 24” because the are nicer to sit on. I have a 36” for my fold down top bunk and it works well to sleep my 7 & 8 year old Are they nice? Yes. Are they a nessecity? No. I don’t have one and moisture has never been an issue. The only prob I have is cooking bacon in the house.... I love bacon but when u cook it in the house it lingers for days, but not sure the vent would totally solve this LED!!!!! You need to decide whether you’re going to have a generator and how long you want to run it. If you think that you’re going to constantly run a generator then you probably want to have more 120 V lights in the last 12 V lights. If you’re not going to run a generator that often or not at all then you would want to cut down in the number of 120 V lights.  Three way switches are in valuable within a fish house. Being able to switch on the entire bank of lights by the door and also by the rear bunk is very nice when you hear the rattle real go off in the middle of the night. I have three double pancake LED lights in my house that can be switched on and off individually one light or too light per fixture. I then ran the input power through a three way switch so that I can shut each light down individually or shut the whole works off as one. Hall lights are also very important, we used LED Leison plate lights and they work awesome
    • Been sick at all since starting to use it?  Friends of mine have been using it for a few years religiously for one reason or another.  They keep a jug of it next to the coffee pot.
    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
