Update :: Hocker Puts Another Ace On His Score Card

Curt Hocker has now been nicknamed “The Hole In One Kid” and rightly so after sinking another hole in one on Friday November 14th. After a remarkable five aces in one week alone Hocker did it again with his hole in one on the 155 yard, #3 hole at El Paso Golf Club. This makes eight aces total this year for the young golfer, five of the hole in ones being on par 4 holes!

The golf pro at El Paso, Steve Fulton, calls the event “mind boggling” but has no doubt in the 22 year old. Hocker has had playing partners at every hole in ones and over 20 eyewitnesses in total. Hocker himself was in amazement of Friday afternoons hole in one, when he drove up to the hole he did not see the ball right away he assumed it had rolled into one of the sand traps next to the hole. It was not until his playing partner walked over to the green to spot the ball in the hole. Hocker was in complete disbelief that he hit his 11th hole in one of his golfing career just days after his unbelievable feat of five aces in one week.

Hocker has become a recognized in recent golf news and not just here at Foresite Sports. Hocker’s story will be reported in Sports Illustrated as well as a feature article in Golf Digest. Hocker and his playing partners said that last Friday might have been the last round of golf they will get in for the year but what a way to end it!

Young Golfer Scored Five Aces In One Week!!

Hole in one insurance took on a whole knew meaning at El Paso Golf Club in Central Illinois where the 22 year hole Curt Hocker scored an impressive 5 holes in one in one week at the local golf club. Hocker’s story would be unbelievable to most so fortunately his family and friends were there to witness some of them. He can hardly believe it himself saying, “I don’t know what to think, after each one I say it’s over, and it keeps happening.” Hocker didn’t make these aces in any tournaments for prizes however the club offers a different type of insurance where they have to pay for drinks for everyone in the clubhouse every time a hole in one is made. Needless to say if Hocker keeps this up he might be putting the clubhouse bar out of business!

Can you even imagine the amount of prizes that Hocker would have walked away with if his play was insured by Foresite Sports? When Foresite Sports insures your event, we take into account what most think is impossible; multiple holes in one in one event. This is why included with the insurance for most grand prizes we cover multiple holes in one. This is most commonly referred to as prize restoration which means that the prize will reset in the case of multiple holes in one. This is extremely important when purchasing hole in one insurance just in case your golfers break the odds that day and more than one scores and ace. With Foresite Sports you are automatically covered for that second hole in one so you won’t have to worry about a thing with two people make hole in ones for a $30,000 new car!
