Just How Likely Are You To Get a Hole In One?

Friday, August 27, 2010

The hole in one has long been the luck of the draw, but some people seem to be able to hit an ace more frequently than other golfers do. Is there a trick? Perhaps there is some skill you can learn to improve your chances?

A question many people often ask when purchasing hole in one insurance is just how likely it is for their tournament golfers to actually hit that ace. Any time that an average golfer steps to the tee at a par 3 hole, they have the probability of sinking an ace at 1 in 12,500 attempts. In fact, US Hole In One actually conducted a survey to determine what these results are.

Interestingly, many of those that talk about these odds do one of two things. First, they promise that the process is simplistic and even easy to do. It is not. Second, they sometimes claim that the hole in one is simply too hard to achieve and that is an exaggeration. What our survey showed, which was conducted over a five year period, is that the numbers are a bit closer than what people like to think. What our survey did, too, was to show what the actual par 3 scoring information was. The average distance for a hole in one was calculated to be 162 yards. In other words, the survey we conducted has helped to give our users as well as our team a better understanding of how frequently the average golfer can hit a hole in one.
