No man’s life is deemed complete without finding the bottom of the cup off the tee box.
The odds of an amateur golfer hitting a hole-in-one are 12,500-to-1 and 2,500-to-1 for a PGA TOUR professional. Needless to say, hitting a hole-in-one is hard. It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.
The one thing odds can never fully account for is beginner’s luck, which spits in the face of hard. Exhibit A: this woman in the midst of her first ever golf lesson.
Golf sure has a sick sense of humor. Here I am, waking my ass up at the crack of dawn for early tee times week after week, coming close but never achieving the ultimate goal of hitting a hole-in-one, only to stumble across a video of this broad crossing off a bucket list item of mine while wearing a giant fucking pom pom on her head.
I want to say this video is a hoax. That ball couldn’t have possibly gone in. It had such a poor flight plan and there’s no chance it landed softly without having hit down on the ball. I’ll probably tell myself these things over and over again until I fall asleep tonight.
Here’s some advice, lady: Quit. The game will never be this kind to you again. Get that ball mounted and call it a career. I’m sure your husband would love to display that pink lady in the game room.
Your swing is helpless, too. You won’t be breaking 120 anytime soon. You’d be saving not only yourself, but the entire golf community the headache of having you on the links.
Your hole-in-one video has already ruined one day for me. Don’t you dare get a tee time ahead of me down the road and play a six hour-round. Lord hear my prayer..
