A One in Two Trillion Event?
The chances of a golfer hitting a hole in one are generally agreed to be about 1 in 12,500.
So the chances of two golfers at the same club getting one on the same day are 12,500 x 12,500, which is 1 in 156,250,00. Near as we can tell, that happens somewhere in the world, every few years.
You can probably see where this is going now…
Three holes in one bump those odds to 1 in 1,953,125,000,000… almost two trillion to one…
And that’s exactly what happened here at Half Moon Bay on Saturday June 10th, 2023. Three of our Members each scored an elusive hole in one, on three different holes, during our June Monthly Medal event.
The first was Daniel Churches on the 11th early in the morning, followed by Graham Sunners on the 3rd a little later on, with Dog Westerman holing out on the 16th late in the day. You’d never know it looking at them, but there’s over 60 years between Daniel and Dog,
Congrats to all three players.., trophies and prizes are on the way.
Special recognition also needs to go out to Dog… this was his 7th competition hole in one!
You’d never know it looking at them, but there’s over 60 years between Daniel and Dog, so at least Dan has a bit of time to try an match Dog’s record.
