Hole In One News

At Foresite Sports we love to hear news about people making holes-in-one. For some it is a once-in-a-lifetime shot and for others it isn’t. To recent holes-in-one got our attention:

The first hole-in-one that we noticed came from a medical student. The Clearwater Gazette in Florida reported that:

“Harbor Bluffs resident Louis Michaelos scored a Hole-In-One at the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club, Sunday, October 11th, on the 3rd hole – 199 yards. He was playing with his father, John Michaelos, his brother, Gregory, and his sister Elena.

Louis, the son of Dr. and Mrs. John Michaelos, was home for fall break from Nova Southeastern School of Medicine – Ft. Lauderdale.”

The second one came from a nine year old. Yes, a nine year old! According to Becky Sauers of Talahasse.com, nine-year-old Bryce Johnson aced the 126 yard 7th hole at Golden Eagle Golf Club. We also learn that the young boy weighs only 55 pounds, but can hit the ball over 175 yards. So whatever he currently lacks in size he makes up with heart and talent.

The article then revealed that:

“Bryce first picked up a club when he was two and a half years old. His mom and dad noticed that he had excellent eye and hand coordination and seem to hit the golf ball every time he swung at it. With encouragement from his parents he continued to practice hitting balls in the church yard regularly.

Young Bryce’s future looks very bright and we at Foresite Sports wish him the best. Before we forget, our congratulations must go out to both Bryce and Louis. Good job guys! We at Foresite Sports know the value of getting a hole-in-one. That is why we provide quality hole in one insurance for golf outing.  Prizes for hole in one insurance contests backed with our coverage range from brand new cars to airline tickets anywhere in the continental US. So make sure you tell your tournament director about us, so that we could set up one of these contests at your golf club. We can be contacted at 888-882-5440 and we look forward to serving you.

What’s the Most Important Club in Your Bag?

Haven’t you always wondered what the most valuable club in your bag is? David Dusek, a writer for Golf.com, took the initiative by e-mailing several GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers and asking them the following question: What is the most important/valuable club in a weekend player’s bag? We are going to share some of their responses:

Brian Mogg, coach of Y.E. Yang and director of the Brian Mogg Performance Center at Golden Bear Golf Club at Keene‘s Point in Windermere, Fla. wrote:

“The putter is the most important/valuable club in the bag. However, the actual cost to the manufacturer to build a putter is much less than a large-headed driver with a graphite shaft. Your putter is vital and important and worth every penny if it works, but proportional to what it costs to make it should also be looked at.  This is why $250 seems high-priced for a putter.”

Mike Bender, coach of Zach Johnson and master instructor at the Mike Bender Golf Academy at Timacuan Golf Club in Lake Mary, Fla. says:

“Without a doubt, the most important club in the bag is the driver.  Have you ever heard of a golfer incurring a penalty on a putter? If the average amateur golfer hit to his typical distance, but you put him in the middle of every fairway, he’d better his handicap by a mile. When I was playing the
PGA Tour, officials had just started to keep detailed stats, and the No. 1 putter was Morris Hatalsky. For being the best putter, he was nowhere near the top of the money list. But guys like Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bruce Litsky, Nick Faldo, and Mark O’Meara were, and none of them could be considered great putter like Ben Crenshaw, Lorin Roberts and Brad Faxon.”

However, the responsibility of this decision lies on you. You have to be objective in order to look at the areas that truly need improvement. At Foresite Sports being objective is one of our strategies and it has allowed us to be successful. Let us help you by providing you with quality hole-in-one insurance. For more information you can call us at 888 882 5440.

Golf Facts Revealed

It’s your friendly hole in one insurance company coming to you from Bryn Mawr, PA. If you don’t know who we are, we’re Foresite Sports. We strive to continually provide our customers with quality hole in one insurance coverage which also happens to be affordable. We’ve been doing this for years and we won’t stop. Now onto the fun stuff. In this blog segment we will hit you with some interesting golf facts.

Ok lets set it off with the first fact. Did you know that the World’s Longest Golf Course is the International Golf Club in Massachusetts, a long par 77,  8325-yards, from the tiger tees. Now that sounds like a long round of golf!

Next, did you know that the Longest Hole in the World is the 7th hole (par 7) of the Sano Course at the Satsuki Golf Club in Japan.  It measures a whopping 909 yards. Love to see Bubba Watson take that big guy on.

Did you know that the World’s Largest Bunker is Hell’s Half Acre on the 585-yard 7th hole of the Pine Valley Course in New Jersey.

This next fact will definitely turn some heads. A truly interesting gentleman by the name of  Floyd Satterlee Rood used the United States as a golf course, when he played from the Pacific to the Atlantic from September 14, 1963, to October 3, 1964, in 114,737 strokes.  He lost 3,511 balls on the 3,397.7 mile trail.

This should make you wonder where/how these people come up with these ideas. If it doesn’t then this next fact should: the Lowest Recorded Score for throwing a golf ball around 18 holes (more than 6,000 yards) is 82 by Joe Flynn, ages 21, at the 6,228-yard Port Royal Course in Bermuda on March 27, 1975.

Golfers have done a lot of cool things in the past and the future of the game looks good. Just remember that if you need premier hole in one insurance all you have to do is call 888 882 5440 or visit our website: www.foresitesports.com.

Short Game Help

Here’s the scenario: you’ve missed the green on a par 3 and there is a high bunker between your ball and the hole. What’s even worse is that the green slopes downwards towards the hole. You’re not having a nightmare and you’re not about to wake up from it because this is reality. Even though this shot is intimidating it is way easier than getting a hole in one.  With a little practice and correct technique you’ll be on your way to becoming a short-game maestro.

So how exactly do you play this shot? What we want to accomplish is a high floating shot that lands a couple of feet on the green and trickles towards the hole. First you set up with an open stance and open the clubface as far as you can. Try to imagine a glass of water resting on your 60 degree wedge’s club face. Also if you don’t have a 60 degree wedge make sure you get one. Just like you need a little luck to make a hole-in-one, you need a 60 degree wedge to have a truly versatile short game.

Once you adopt an open stance with an open face you should cock your wrists in your takeaway. On your downswing the key is to swing on your feet line. Also make sure that you accelerate through the shot as the ball wont travel far. Swing to a full finish and watch your ball rise into the air and land as softly as a feather. Hopefully you’ll save your par or even sneak in a birdie. Till then make sure that outings at your golf club have hole-in-one insurance.  Hole-in-one insurance makes playing par 3s worthwhile. All holes-in-one are rewarded so everyone’s happy at the end of the day. Foresite Sports is here to make your day brighter. Call 888 882 5440 to find out more. You won’t regret it.

Foresite Sports’ Tips for Great Golf

Foresite Sports is a premier supplier of hole-in-one and golf contest insurance and is located in Bryn Mawr, PA if you ever decide to visit us. We’ve made a lot of customers happy and we intend to keep doing so. This wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have a passion for what we do, as well as for the game of golf. This time around we are going to share some tips that should help you play your best golf ever. Hopefully that round will include a hole-in-one, but maybe that a bit too much to hope for.

Well, our first tip is to honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses. The key is to play to your strengths. If you don’t hit the ball far it might not be a good idea to try and carry a ball 265 yards over a lake. Instead, lay up! If you have a favorite yardage, be it 150 yards or 100 yards, try to leave that yardage into greens as many times as you can. If you really want to be a complete player, then we encourage you to try and turn your weaknesses into your future strengths. This sounds simple and you can call us “captain obvious” but this is a lot harder than you may think.

Next, make sure that you spice up your short game. There’s no point in hitting it great off of the tee, unless you can finish it off. “Drive for show and putt for a lot of dough.” This is one of golf’s most abused clichés, but no matter how annoying it gets, it is true!

The last tip is the hardest to do. Control your emotions! Don’t get too down or even too up. Overexcitement can be as defeating as anger or frustration. This allows you to make solid decisions in the 4 or so hours that you spend on the course.

So that’s it for this time. Lastly, Foresite Sports is the best when it comes to hole-in-one insurance. Call us at 888-882-5440 to find out why.

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

Looking to Raise More Money

If your event needs to make some additional money, consider adding Foresite Sports’ putting contest to your tournament package. In many circumstances, this type of event can add a bit more to those fundraising plans that you might have. For example, you can sell raffle tickets to your tournament members for the opportunity to putt for the grand prize. If you are considering the need to raise a few more dollars, do consider how our putting contests work.

All you need to do in this situation is to let us know and we will help you to put together the putting contest. It is similar to a hole in one challenge. Here’s how it works.

  • You will be able to offer valuable grand prizes to your golfers as a reward during this contest.
  • Select one or two golfers that are already in your event who will compete here.
  • They will then get to attempt a single 40 or 50 foot putt. They are playing for the grand prize.
  • If the participants are able to putt the ball into a hole in one try, they will win the grand prize.

So, how will you pay for this type of coverage? It is simple. If they win, Foresite Sports covers the costs. You just get to claim that someone in your event won the grand prize! To learn more about how putting contests are set up and how to get yours in place simply contact us today. This is a great way to make some extra money at your golf tournament.

Careers Are On The Line At This Year’s PGA School

For aspiring professional golfers who want to get onto the PGA Tour, this is a very important time. The final stage of tour school is being played and only 25 golfers will advance onto the PGA Tour, whilst the others will have to settle for the Nationwide Tour. The road here has been tough as there are at least two stages before the third and final stage of tour school. Professional golfers without any sort of status, have to go through a prequalification stage. So it’s pretty much dog-eat –dog and there is no insurance on anything.

So the feeling of making a hole-in-one would be similar to making it onto the PGA Tour for these golfers. What’s even more interesting is that David Duval, a former world number one golfer is participating in the final round. He is the first former number one player to do so, which shows how much his game slumped but also how good these golfers really are. US Hole In One definitely agrees that there is no insurance or guarantee on making it through tour school. These golfers have to play well and earn their way through.

However, Foresite Sports provides some insurance of its own, as most of you already know. Foresite Sports specializes in hole in one insurance and that is definitely a guaranteed service. So, if a person makes a hole-in-one on an insured hole they could win big. Really big! We’ve helped give away cars, cash prizes, vacation trips and more. Therefore, if you know the tournament director at your golf club, or even better, if you are the tournament director then you have come to the right place. We welcome you and would like to let you know that we not only offer the best hole-in-one coverage but it is really affordable. On top of that you can take a look at the golf outing services that we provide. These services can be viewed on our website (www.foresitesports.com) or you could call us directly at 888 882 5440.
