Top 10 Hole in One Shots
A hole-in-one is usually a once in a lifetime opportunity. As part of a fundraiser, a competition or golf tournament (check out this first of its kind hole-in-one competition in New Zealand – for both amateurs and pro’s) there will be a 3-par tee that has your name on it … or not. A hole-in-one is like the elusive win. Jubilation and exhilaration are usually the emotions that come to mind when watching someone score that lucky one shot – you don’t even need to win the game to feel elated!
Here we have chosen some magic shots that are great to watch – and maybe give you that drive you need to succeed!

10. And lucky last is Australian’s own Aaron Baddeley had an astounding hit on the par-4 in San Antonio – getting a birdie (336 yards). So it’s not a hole-in-one but it’s pretty amazing considering it was a shot from within the woods — http://www.pgatour.com/the-upshot/2015/03/26/round-one-valero-texas-open.html
So dust off those golf clubs … and even if you spend most of the time throwing the irons in frustration rather than hitting the balls, who knows … that elusive Hole-In-One could be just around the corner!!
