Default Hole in One

Have your or yours made a hole in one?

I'm putting together a presentation about "Hole in Ones."
This seems interesting:
There are approximately 450 million rounds of golf played each year in the U.S
Each course reports 10-15 hole in ones each year
A hole in one is scored once every 3,500 golf rounds
Odds of making a hole in one is 1:3500
Only 1-2% of golfers score a hole in one during the year
Average years of playing is 24
Average handicap of golfers making hole in one is 14
Ball used most often is Titleist (45%), Nike (14%), and Top Flite (11%)


Is there information that is particular to the villages about "hole in ones?"

There are lots of them that happen. I have had two hole in one's on par 3's, 3 eagles on par 4's but only two eagles on a par 5. I have had several that were tap in's for birdies. For me the par 4 eagles were the hardest. Two have happened here in the Villages. Pimlico number 6 and Cane Garden Allamanda number 6.

The great thing is you remember every one of those shots.

Does anyone work in a starter shack on an executive course? How often, on average does someone report a hole in one? once a day? week? month?

Hole-in-oners probably don't report to the shack, they head to the bar.

The only time I have ever claimed a "hole in one" is when I test my waterproof boots .... sorry, for high jacking the thread, I will return it now.

Every Thursday in the Daily Sun sports section you can see the hole in ones, Eagles, and shooting you age for folks in The Villages.

Check the Villages Magazine annual golf edition (I can't seem to access it online and my copy is not here) from this January. It has all kinds of stats on golf in TV including how many ho1's were accomplished last year.

In 55 years of golf (only a regular for the last 10) I have never scored a hole in one. I have come close but no cigar. I have had three par four eagles, which is nice.

I have read in the Villages News Paper recently that there are 6.2 Hole in Ones PER DAY here in The Villages. When the paper lists the achievements weekly, count the number per day. Pretty close to 6.2. Particularly in the winter months when the "birds" are here.

Seven in my life including a "worm burner" at age eleven. If it hadn't hit the pin, it would have surely gone OB. None in The Villages, and none since 2011.

That first one might need another asterisk....it was with a Penfold (English Small Ball)

Only 1 (so far).

Statistically though, my odds wold increase substantially... if I played executive courses.
