Hole in One on a Par 5 Made!

If you think the odds of hitting a hole-in-one are high, the most difficult and rarest of shots is a double eagle. A double eagle is a hole-in-one on a Par 4. Compared to a hole-in-one, the odds of a double eagle are like throwing a marble into a water hose at 50 feet. But we are excited to report to you that it has happened!

Chip Shots Hole in One Board

Some of you may be starting to think that getting a hole in one is nothing special since we are able to post so many hot shots each week.   But don't be fooled!  The stats are that only 1-2% of golfers score a hole in one during the year, that a hole in one is scored only once every 3,500 golf rounds and that the odds of an average player making an ace is 12,000 to 1.  So let's give a hearty congrats to these amazing golfers!
