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.

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.
