Golf is a game of incredible precision, and the skill needed to compete on the pro level is very rare. And even the absolute best of the best can’t land a shot in the hole with just one stroke reliably. Landing a hole in one, or an “ace” in golf terms, is incredibly difficult. Statisticians put the odds at one in 100,000 for an average golfer and one in 2,500 for a pro. So what happens if you take a solid European Tour golfer in Andy Sullivan, give him 500 balls and a hole, and tell him to do it for you? A very entertaining video.
Andy Sullivan is a funny guy, a sharp wit who is very vocal about his performance, so he was a great choice to anchor this clip. He’s not anywhere near the career hole in one record of the great Norman Manley (which stands at 59 and isn’t likely to be broken any time soon), but he’s very capable with his driver and a three-time Tour winner. That being said, watching him try and fail over and over to get the distance on the 11th hole on the Heritage Course at London Golf Club is both stressful and very funny.
