Tour Pro Tries to Make Hole in One with 500 Balls

Does he make one?  

62 members have voted

  1. 1. BEFORE you watch the video, do you think he makes one? The hole is 145 yards away, winds are calm, and he's hitting a 9-iron.

    • Yes, he makes at least one.
    • No, he doesn't hole out in 500 tries.

"In a couple of hours, this is not going to be fun. . ."

The other thing is his odds are only 2500:1? After watching, yes. He actually had a chance at it.

I liked watching this. Unfortunately, I also wrote the wrong thing into a service request. I'm going to have to explain what I meant by "hole in one" for SW support. :-D

I'll assume they don't clear the balls away between shots?  Wonder how long the hole is too....and there's a benefit to hitting the same shot over and over vs just a random odds for a single shot.

If he is good enough to get most close enough, there's a lot of balls near the hole that can be knocked in.  So as it continues, less chance the tee ball goes in, more chance 'any' ball might go in. 

Will watch it now.

 

edit:  (they do clear the balls away so my assumption was bad)

That was fun to watch. His reactions were great.

They will need to lay a little sod down on that tee box, I wonder if the Superintendent was on board for this? Might need to do a few ball mark repairs on that green as well. :-P

His reactions are great, shows you how tough it is to make a hole in one. He was all around it, but alas it wasn't in the cards.

I think they may have just cut down some grass off to the side and put a tee marker there. I bet that either wasn't a real tee, or was a sod farm they don't have a pressing need to use, or maybe was even on or near the range or something.

Cuz, yeah, 500 divots with a 9-iron are gonna destroy that thing.

Voted no (before watching) - I would like to see the dispersion chart for that.
Looked like he was hitting some from in front otf the markers - ouch if that had gone in {eyes rolling}

Now I want to see his brother Francesco try it

 

What would be a similar test for those without help - 50 tries at a 50'+ putt (something like a downhill double breaker), 75'+?
Maybe a practice green challenge for the next TST Michigan outing?

I voted no, played the odds. Vaguely recall the odds of a pro golfer making a hole-in-one is 1 in 2000 or something like that.

Skipped through parts of the video just now and I'm assuming he didn't make one.

What a nice swing...I've never hit a ball as pure as one of those...and I have a hole in one.
