Korn Ferry Tour 773 Yard Par 5!

Geez. Even after a really good driver and a really good 3W, I’d still have probably a Bryson DeChambeau drive into the green. That’s one hole where I would NOT be too disappointed with a double bogey.

Not saying I would, but yea, I could.

At sea level it’s probably not happening.

If you let me hit 773 yards in any direction, yeah. In a specific direction, prolly not...

At elevation, yes but it would take 3 really good swings in a row.

At sea level, possibly, if I could string together a great drive and two perfect 3-woods. But the chances of that are very slim.

At sea level, it'd have to be more like a par 5! for me than a par 5.  Yes, I am making a factorial joke.

I have periodically made it to a 430 yard par-4 with driver, 4W (on one or two occasions, a hybrid second shot).  I think my longest 4W was 215 yards.  So... I'd have a wedge in for my fourth shot.  

I'm glad I accomplished the "no sixes" challenge before having to take on that hole!

I would get there in 3 maybe a quarter of the time. I average 270 off the tee with driver, so I would need an above average driver and at least one really good 3 wood.

A lot of you guys are fooling yourselves if you think you would get there in 3. A 300 yard drive still leaves a 473 yard hole, which is a 3 shot par 5 for the vast majority of golfers. The altitude difference isn't as much as you think it is:

If you've ever played golf on higher altitude courses like ones in Denver, Jackson Hole or Reno, you probably noticed that you were seeing some added distance to your game. ...

Add 6% to your current distance, and you'll have a rough estimate. 

For reference, the median PGA Tour player drives the ball 295 yards, which would be 313 yards at this course, with the 6% addition.

I am not familiar with that genre. I like insult comics, but I think those are now against the law.

It would be very close for me to get there in 3. 10% more distance and assuming some hard fairways. I here that there is a lot less hook or slice curve, so that helps. Looks like a fairly wide open hole.

Factorials are the product of it and all the positive integers less than it, and x factorial is written as x!.  So 3! = 3 * 2 * 1 = 6, 4! = 4 * 3 * 2 * 1 = 24, and 5! = 120.  So if it's a par 5! (note the placement of the ! in the original post), it's a par 120.  I might birdie it some day.

I could get home with a ripped driver and two ripped 3 woods. A gentle helping  breeze would make me less daunted but anything other then perfectly struck shots and it’s not happening. Bout a one in fifteen chance I reckon.......maybe

And into the wind, even a zephyr, the forgettaboutit

I am an engineer and I get it.

0! = 1

That's one I never considered and had to verify.   Thanks for the education.
