How To Make A Hole In One

Here are Foresite Sports’ recommended steps to getting a hole-in-one. Granted the odds are against you and luck is a big factor, following these steps will give you the best chance possible.

Firstly we advise you get a couple of lessons from a PGA Professional. This professional will help you improve your golf swing. The fundamentals of a good golf swing should never go unnoticed. First your alignment should be spot on. This means that your feet, hips and shoulders should be aligned parallel-left to your target. The best way to imagine this is to think of two parallel railway tracks. Your feet are on the inner track and your target line is the outer track. Once you align yourself correctly you are closer to making that hole-in-one. The professional will then teach you how to make a powerful backswing and through swing.

Next your clubs should be fitted to your body type. A bad carpenter does blame his or her tools but when it comes to golf your “tools” have to match your body. That way you can stay in your posture and send that little ball into the cup for a hole-in-one.

Visualization is important! You need to see that hole-in-one happening and yourself driving away in that brand new car, thanks to the presence of hole-in-one insurance. That should make for a smooth drive with your hair blowing in the wind. Speaking of hole-in-one insurance, where do you plan on getting it from? Well Foresite Sports is your best bet. Our hole-in-one insurance is affordable and definitely provides the prizes that you want. In the past we have given away numerous BMW’s, vacation trips and cash prizes.

Golf In The Olympics

It was more than 112 years ago that golf was played in the Olympics. The game was played at the 1900 and the 1904 Olympic Games but then was voted out of the Olympics by the supporting membership. Things are changing, though. On Thursday, August 13th, the official committee voted to include golf, along with Rugby Union in the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games.

The ruling is not completely official yet. The International Olympic Committee must make a full vote and that will not happen until the October meeting scheduled to be held in Copenhagen.

How does golf get played in the Olympics? The currently proposed situation involves two, 72 hole tournaments. One will be for men, one for women. There will be 60 competitors in each of the events. To get there, the top 15 players in the world will automatically be qualified to enter the Olympics. From there, competitions will seek out the other players. And, to accommodate the events, the major golf schedules will be changed to meet the needs of the Olympics, to ensure all of the world's top players are available to play.

Whether they do play or not is up to the players. There is already talk about who will qualify and some players have weighed in on their likely decisions with many saying that they will wait and see. Tiger Woods commented that he would likely play, if he had not retired by that time. He will be in his early 40's at the time of the Olympic Games. It is doubtful that the Olympics would include a hole in one prize as a component of the competition but we at Foresite Sports are keeping our fingers crossed!

What are the Odds of Hitting a Hole In One?

A question often asked…just how hard is it to hit a hole in one on a golf course? By some estimates, on any given par 3 hole, the odds of hitting a hole in one is 1 in 12,500 attempts. Those odds may look like they are too high to be considered good, but when you consider the some of these other facts; you will see that those odds really do look good.

For example, the odds of hitting an ace on a designated hole, by an average player, are 1 in 12,500. However, the likelihood of hitting two holes in one during a single round jumps to 1 in 26,045,834. The odds of hitting back-to-back hole in ones, those odds are even higher at 1 in 156,250,000.

On the other hand, the professional golfer has much better odds. The professional golfer's odds of hitting a hole in one on a designated hole are just 1 in 2,500. That means if you have a full field of professional golfers playing in a tournament, which equates to 144 golfers in the event, then the odds of hitting a hole in one by someone in the field are just 1 in 22.

What does this all mean to you? If you are a golfer, you can see just how much work (and time on the greens) it will take you to hit your ace.

For those considering the benefits of hosting a hole in one tournament or even a shootout, the good news is that these odds can work in your favor. However, even if you want to avoid the risk associated with such win, contact Foresite Sports to learn how this type of insurance can help you to sponsor an excellent event without the risks.

Hole in One Wins Man Car

The news out of Chippewa Valley is exciting. Mike Kell became a lucky man when he hit a hole in one on the golf course last week. Mr. Kell was playing at the United Way golf tournament that held at Lake Wissota Golf Course. On the 11th hole, he sunk the ball with just one shot and that meant he received the keys to a Subaru Impreza.

Mr. Kell is not new to golf, having golfed for the last 45 years. He has been retired from Kell Containers for ten years now and spends some of those days on the golf course. He has played in the United Way tournament almost every year since it first started some 21 years ago.

As he approached the 11th hole, Mr. Kell glanced over at the vehicle. The 159 yard, par 3 hole was not one he thought he could hit the hole at one at. He did not think about the prize as he stepped up. He has hit a hole in one before, at a different golf course. Mr. Kell only plays at the Lake Wissota Golf Course one time per year so he was unfamiliar with the hole.

The United Way employee at the event was Chuck Frenette, who has been involved in the tournament for some time. He has not seen anyone win the hole in one prize since the tournament first started.

Hitting a hole in one is celebration enough for most people, but to win a prize for doing so makes it that much better. If your organization is considering such an event, using Foresite Sports can help you to cover the costs of the vehicle or other prize your offer. This way, when someone does hit that ace, you don't have to worry about paying for it.

13 Year Old Whiz Kid Makes Hole In One at LPGA Event

Fox Sports recently reported that a 13 year old amateur golfer made a hole in one on in the first round of the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge in Danville, California.
According to Fox Sports, Casie Cathrea earned her spot in the CVS Pharmacy LPGA Challenge in Danville, California, by finishing second in a Monday qualifier. She definitely didn’t stop there. She went on to ace the 165-yard 12th hole. "I hit a 5-iron," Cathrea said. I didn't really know it went in until my caddie talked to me about it."

The article then revealed that Cathrea is just a high school freshman. She is from Livermore, California, and is the second-youngest golfer to ever qualify for an LPGA Tour event. Nevertheless, she is no rookie when it comes to making holes in one. This was her third!

There was one disappointing aspect to it, she said. The tournament offers a car as a prize for a hole in one on No. 12, but she couldn't accept it without losing her amateur status. Anyways, she is most definitely a very talented young lady with a bright future. If she keeps this up, she could eventually be sponsored by a car company. Only time will tell though.

As for those of us who have never gotten a hole in one there is still hope. Maybe your first hole-in-one can be for a car. Just make sure that you inform the director of golf at your club about a company by the name of Foresite Sports. We provide affordable hole-in-one insurance, custom golf hole sponsor signs, and other golf outing services that you will definitely enjoy.
