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.
