Odds of Getting a Hole In One

It’s the one thing that golfer’s would like to have done. It’s not easy by any means, and it requires some luck in the form of a perfect bounce. Of course we’re talking about a hole in one. Have you ever made one? If not, we at Foresite Sports strongly encourage you to keep trying. After all, all you need is one; one perfect shot that is! Anyways, what exactly are the odds of this happening?

Back in 2000, Francis Scheid, Ph.D., retired chairman of the mathematics department at Boston University shared his calculations with Golf Digest.

So what are the odds of someone making a hole in one in any round ? Any lucky guesses? Well, the answer is a whopping 3,125 to 1! Alright, on to the next question?

What are the odds of two players in the same foursome making a hole in one on the same hole?
Drum roll….ok maybe not. The answer is 26 million to 1. Good luck with that! It has been done, but those are truly some seemingly insurmountable odds.

Next up is Foresite Sports’ favorite odds: the odds of making a hole-in-one on a grand prize hole. These are pretty much the odds that stand between you and a million dollars or a grand prize. The odds of that occurring are 12,500 to 1!

Now for the special people. Those that have luck that never runs out. Some people have never ever gotten a hole in one, but these people have made more than one in one day. We’re talking about people who have dared to make two or even three aces in a single round. Ridiculous! So the odds of the same player making two aces in the same round are a strong 26 million to 1 whilst the mindboggling odds of the same player making 3 in one round are 488 billion to 1.

Anyways, don’t let these odds stop you from reaching your goal. Till then, we wish you the best of luck. For quality hole in one insurance you can call us at 888 882 5440 or visit us on the web at www.foresitesports.com
