Welp...both jokes I were going to make have been taken care of.

Defrauding hole-in-one insurance could be quite lucrative.

Posted April 1st. I have my doubts.

FTFA:  The website doubleagleclub.org lists nine golfers, including the late UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, who have accomplished the feat of making a double-eagle and a hole-in-one in the same round. Wooden did it in 1939 on an Indiana course.

Chie Arimura, now on the LPGA Tour, isn't on that website's list but she had a double-eagle and an ace in the same round on the Japanese LPGA Tour in 2011.


I think I figured out why.

All you have to do is ace a par-4
 
2014-04-02 05:04:03 PM
Pfft. I made seven aces in one round before.

I know a guy who killed a rabbit and a duck, in the same round (hit the rabbit on #3 and the duck on #12)

Yeah, he didn't think that joke was particularly funny after about nine hundred references to it....and actually, the guy has not played a single round of golf since that day and it happened about 10 years ago.

I could get on a 470 yard par 5 in 2, so I'm not going to say its not possible

Has anyone ever done both on the same hole? I presume a hole in one on a parnfour.

It can't be that difficult. I'm about a 20 handicap these days and I've hit the stick with my drive on a par four that was about 310 yards but with a hard dogleg left, so probably about 280 from tee to pin.

That's a helluva a drive, isn't it? My dad, a big ex-football player, could drive the ball about 300yds, and everyone was always slack jawed impressed with that. And to hit the stick?! Damn dude.

Dumb luck. I had a tail wind and a "fark it, I'm goin' deep" moment. I wanted to say just once in my life that I had driven the green on a par-four. I hit a monster that caught the wind, with a hook that would've been 40 yards in the rough on any other par-four. The ground was so hard that if my ball hadn't hit the stick it would've gone off the back of the green.

As it was I missed the seven-foot putt for eagle.

I'm pretty sure the most ridiculous phrase in the English language is "I am (or he is) a ____ handicap".

As it is, golf is inherently ridiculous, but talking about what your handicap is just takes the cake.

Seriously, a real golfer does both in one hole...

If it's driveable, how can it be a par 4?

Not so much for the pros. Tour average lately is a bit over 280.

I have heard of a double-eagle, but the proper term is albatross. When I saw the same article on Yahoo, ahd to look up the term albatross and then I saw condor. Come back to me when somebody hits a condor.

3-4 eagles in my illustrious duffing career.  Once hit it to ~1ft. on a 173 yrd Par 3 'Hole in One' wins the car deal in a company scramble. Pissed me pants, I did.  But all I got was a rock.....

There are shorter par 4's 280-300 yards on many courses.  A lot of times they are situated between 2 very challenging holes to give you some sense of a break, other times (like a course near me) it's 280 but the back side of the green is a lake and there is 12" of fringe between the green and the retaining wall.  You CAN drive it, but if you go long, you're screwed, so risk/reward is high.

Very cool story to tell with his golfing buddies.  I bet when he tells people his best round is a 74 he conveniently leaves out that little bit in the article that it was a par 65.  What kind of course has a par of 65?

I big time suck at bowling.  I have recovered a 7-10 split.
