Three Out of Four Ain’t Bad
Three players in the same foursome said they made back-to-back-to-back holes-in-one last week on the 115-yard 15th hole at Antelope Greens Golf Course in Antelope, Calif. According to the Sacramento Bee, Bob Fleming, Marc Arcuri and Dan Condie each made aces on the par-3.
The reported feat generated awe and some skepticism. But Dave Schumacher, the only player in the foursome not to get a hole-in-one, said, “They all hit great shots.”
The odds of an average golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,700 to 1, according to the National Hole in One Association. Golf Digest says the odds of two players in the same foursome acing the same hole are 17 million to 1. When three players on an Australian course made aces within 10 minutes of each other, HoleInOne.com put the odds at a miraculous 27 trillion to 1.
