You may as well call it a strike or a spare. Or a pizza. Because if you're just gonna make up terms, then you may as well go all the way.
You holed out. Technically you could even say you got up and down. You scrambled for a par. You chipped in. You holed OUT. You didn't hole out IN ONE.
That's not at all logical. A hole in ONE is scoring a ONE on any hole. Since every hole begins from the tee, yes, it means holing a shot from the tee, but it means holing your FIRST SHOT from the tee.
It's really that simple.
Wrong. Yours went in on the third shot. It's irrelevant where it went in FROM since it was your THIRD SHOT.
The start of the hole was when you put your FIRST ball on the tee and made your FIRST swing at the ball. Not your second ball or your third shot (or second actual swing).
Interesting that your only supporter in this is also from Australia.
No, because that's still only 7 frames. ;)
Seriously though, I think that is the right analogy, slightly tweaked. Throwing one gutter ball, then picking up all 10 with your second, and then calling it a strike, would be pretty equivalent to what he did.
If only "hole in three" was the original title. (Of course, then he probably wouldn't have got the views he was hoping for ;))
Logman, do you moonlight as a headline writer for yahoo.com?
You know, I stared at that post of mine and thought something is really wrong here, it would be 18 gutter balls followed by three consecutive strikes wouldn't it for 18 frames? I like the way you tweaked it better. A ten at once spare. Maybe golf needs some kind of term to describe this type of "par in one" so to speak.
