The white, pock-marked Titliest ball arcs through the air, the thwack of your 7 iron still resonating out past the teeing ground, over the finely manicured lawns, and toward the putting green. You place your hand to your brow to shield the sun as the white speck rockets forward, reaches the zenith of its travels.
It cuts through the calm morning sky, hits with the gentlest of thuds and careens toward the pin. For the briefest of moments, your cohorts behind you watch, silent, mouths agape. It can't be -- Not from this distance. The thwack from your golf swing still resonating through your body, you steady yourself. Watch with the rest of the gawkers.
The white speck slows its acceleration, decelerates, and drops perfectly for a hole in one. The golf Gods look down on you from above, your friends rush to pat you on the back, onlookers marvel at your accomplishment. You smile -- It's going to be a great day for golf.
Now, if we're describing you, this is something to be immensely proud of; according to US Hole in One
, the odds of hitting a hole in one on a par 3 are... Wait for it... Wait for it. For an amateur golfer, the odds are approximately 12,500 to 1. It is an accomplishment like no other. Even when you take into account odds for a professional golfer -- which on that same par 3 course run around 2,500 to 1 -- it's one of the most impressive feats in all of golf.
So, how does one commemorate an experience such as this? You, as one of the select few out of 27 million golfers to have hit a hole in one this year: how does one memorialize this triumph for family and friends to see?Memorialize Your Achievement for the World to SeeIn the News Online
