Playing the Toughest Shot in Golf

Lorena Ochoa isn’t just a fabulous golfer. She is also a well respected Golf Digest Playing Editor, and she only writes articles for Golf Digest. She has an interesting article in October’s issue of Golf Digest, where she explains how to play a 40 to 50 yard bunker shot. Many golfers truly dread this shot because it is very challenging. However, with Lorena’s help golfer’s lives around the world should get a little easier.

She starts her article by saying that on bunker shots of 40 to 50 yards she prefers her 9 iron over a sand wedge. She explains that in order to get that much distance with a sand wedge, which is more lofted, she would likely hit under the ball and land it short or catch the ball thin and skull it over the green. Therefore, the 9 iron is the easier alternative. She then says that she can reach her target with a 9 iron, using the bounce on the bottom of the club to slide through the sand with more room for error.

According to the Golf Digest article, she swings the same way she would with a sand-wedge explosion shot. In order to do that, she starts by opening her stance and clubface to the target, and gripping on the handle. She takes the club back along her stance line and then swings through on an out-to-in path. Her left arm is firm at impact which keeps her from releasing her hands.

The final result is a ball that comes out fairly low, so she allows for some roll. She says that this shot is extremely effective when the pin is on a back tier. She ends off by encouraging golfers to practice this shot so that they can be fearless when they’re faced with a long explosion shot on the course where it matters the most.

Finally, just like Lorena, we at US Hole In One strive to make golfers’ lives easier. Make sure you tell the tournament director at your club about us. We offer affordable hole in one insurance, colorful sponsor signs and many other golf outing services. We look forward to hearing from you.

How Many Holes In One Has Tiger Woods Hit?

A hole in one is a difficult shot to hit no matter who you are. It may or may not surprise some, then, that Tiger Woods, often considered the world's best golfer, has hit 18 holes in one in his lifetime. This is according to USA Today. That number is remarkable and it is something that anyone would be proud.

Interestingly, though, of all of these holes in one hit, Tiger Woods has not hit one in the PGA tournament in the last ten years. The last time he hit one during the PGA was in 1997, at the Phoenix Open. Another memorable hole in one by Tiger dates back to 1996, when he got an ace at the Greater Milwaukee Open.

What does this say about today's top golfer? For most, it would say that it is possible to hit many hole in one shots, but in reality, it is quite rare. The odds of an individual hitting an ace in any golf event are likely to be 3,125 to 1 based on the fact that a standard tournament will allow the golfer to play 4 par 3 holes that day. When you consider the fact that Mr. Woods has hit at least 18 known holes in one in his lifetime, he really blows those odds out of the water!

A hole in one is a shot that goes into the hole straight away. There is no second shot, but rather the initial shot sinks the golf ball. It is rare to get a hole in one however it is one of the surest signs of a good player. We would love to hear your hole in one stories so feel free to comment on this article with any hole in one stories you may have. We would especially like to know if you ever got an ace at a tournament to win a prize. We cover thousands of events each year with hole in one insurance and give away hundreds of prizes each year. Let us know if you are one of the lucky golfers!

Business on the Golf Course

Golf can be used to accomplish a lot of things. In this blog article, we at US Hole In One will share some tips on how to play good “business golf.” We discovered these tips from golf magazine’s instruction blog, and we encourage you to check out the other articles in that blog.

Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher Keith Lyford is the author of this blog article and his first tip urges readers to keep business talk to a minimum on the course. He strongly believes that the main focus of business golf is to get to know people better, and build relationships. “It’s not really to do business on the golf course. The best time to do business is after the round, in the bar. Go get a few drinks, light snacks, and you can talk business there,” he says.

He goes on to say that when you do discuss business on the course, don’t do it on the first hole. He goes on to say that you should limit the business conversation to short little snippets because you don’t want to delay the game. You should use small points and continue the conversation at the next tee or on the green. That way, people will have a chance to think about what you’ve said.

The next tip is to play at a good speed. Slow play is annoying and Lyford states that nobody likes a slow player. Lyford says that the golfer should keep their pre-shot routine between 15 and 25 seconds, and try to take only one practice swing per shot. “If your ball goes in the bushes, don’t take the whole five minutes allowed to search for it. Just throw one out and keep playing. If it’s the client’s ball, go ahead and look for it longer,” he says.
The third tip is not to get angry. Lyford says that it will reflect poorly on you if you’re getting angry or screaming profanities.
The fourth and most important tip is not to cheat. Lyford feels that if you cheat on the course, you probably cheat in business.

Cheaters never prosper, especially in the insurance business. We at US Hole In One pride ourselves on being people with integrity. We promise that you won’t regret working with us. Contact us at 888-882-5440 for affordable hole in one insurance, and golf outing services.
