I've had one shoop

You should not have stopped at one

Country golfer on a City course.

 

I'm good, but no-one seems to care.

 

Now I find out a French au-pair is NOT a breed of goat!

No one remembers an albatross; unless it’s on a par 4. Albatross doesn’t make the honour board at our club.

No one cares about a HIO either 2 seconds after the free beer has been handed out.

Any chopper can have a HIO, it takes a decent golfer to get an albatross on a proper sized par5.

Any chopper can have a HIO, it takes a decent golfer with the arsiest shot of his life to get an albatross on any par 5.

Have had one bruh, although I didn't have a handicap at the time but still got the free beer because it was during Saturday comp.

It wasn't even nearly the best shot I've hit. 

3 iron to 6 inches for tap in eagle is a much better feeling than holing a simple 7 iron.

Don't diss the ace!

 

I have a mate who had one at Yering...elected to not go in the comp, and there was just the 2 of us in the group.

 

As I tell him...when I die, it never happened....

So if we accept Knuth's estimate of double-eagle odds at 1-million-to-1 (and we do), how does that compare to hole-in-one odds? The odds of making an ace are in the neighborhood of 13,000-to-1 for the average golfer. So holes-in-one are, relatively speaking, easy compared to double eagles

Here are a few relevant statistics to drive home the point:

  • -Approximately 40,000 aces a year are made in the United States, compared to just a couple hundred double-eagles.
  • -In the 21 years on the PGA Tour from 1983 through 2003, there were 631 holes-in-one made, but just 56 double eagles. And in none of those years were more than six albatrosses made.
  • -From its inception in 1950 through 2016, a grand total of 36 doubles eagles were made on the LPGA Tour.
  • -From its inception in 1934 through 2016, there were 27 aces in The Masters but only four albatrosses.
  • -From 1895 through 2015 at the U.S. Open, there were 44 aces and three double eagles.

Well done seve.
An albi is better than a HiO, except on a par4 where it's both.

I've had a chicken, does that count? I guess not.
