I read a quote somewhere once that Ben Hogan was congratulated by a journo on the "perfect round" to which he replied that it couldn't be perfect because he had scored more than 18 strokes.

Is there a 1 on a par 5 on record? That'd be some story.

Regained most overrated golfer on this forum title at the Inaugural National ISG event on the Gold Coast September 2012.

Yes its called a Condor and there have been only 4 ever recorded. The first occurred in 1962, when Larry Bruce drove into the hole over a stand of trees on the 480-yard dogleg right par-5 fifth hole at Hope Country Club in Arkansas, USA. Another condor was achieved by "cutting the corner" of a dogleg par-5 by Shaun Lynch at Teign Valley Golf Club in Christow, England, in 1995, on the 496-yard 17th. Lynch aimed straight at the green with a 3-iron, clearing a 20-foot-high hedge and hitting a downslope on the other side, which allowed his ball to roll down to the green and into the hole. A condor was scored without cutting over a dogleg by Mike Crean at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver, Colorado, in 2002, when he holed his drive at the 517 yard par-5 9th. This is longest hole in one on record, although it was of course aided by the altitude and thin air of 'mile-high' Denver. The most recent condor was achieved in Australia by 16 year old Jack Bartlett on the 467 metre par-5 17th at Royal Wentworth Falls Country Club, NSW, Australia, on November 3, 2007.

That's some nice copy and pasting right there... http://thesandtrap.c...-par-for-a-hole I can't find any info on Jack Bartlett's 'condor'. Reckon it's a load of crap.

That's amazing, 676/676 putts made from inside 3 feet with no misses
Perfect Inside 3 Feet Out of 191 players officially ranked on TOUR, there were just six who went the entire 2012 season without missing a putt from inside 3 feet. Of these six players, Bo Van Pelt had the most attempts (676 of 676). Perfect from inside three feet in 2012 Player Percent made Attempts Putts made Bo Van Pelt 100 676 676 Gavin Coles 100 605 605 Steve Stricker 100 590 590 Rory McIlroy 100 438 438 Ian Poulter 100 391 391 John Daly 100 380 380
