What are your chances of making two holes in one??



Not too long ago I wrote about “What are your chances of making a hole in one?”


Golf Digest reported that a PGA Tour pro’s chances of a hole in one is at 1 in 3,756 and an amateur’s at 1 in 12,750.  However, I couldn't find any data on making two holes in one but not on the same round.

I recently made my second hole in one at Ayala Greenfield Estates. This was at hole number 3 from the red tees using my 9 iron.




My 80 -year old father kept saying “I have been playing golf for 40 years now and have never made one....  and this is your SECOND HOLE IN ONE!!!!”.  The clincher was when he added (with a really determined look) ... “I have to play tomorrow so I can try to make a hole in one”.  “Huh???  Are you serious dad???”  

With my flightmates Vic Gloria and Charlie Agatep

I guess my dad was pretty decided to play his A-game because not long after he chipped from the fringe to save par.  Good job dad! :-)

Charlie saving par on hole 5


Everyone was happy.

 Including all our caddies!



So what are the chances of your making 2 holes in one (not in the same round...)  I guess its a lot more common than you think.  The LOVE of my life has made two! 


So we are racing to find out who amongst us will get a 3rd hole in one....


Fore!
