Yeah.... and two of them on par fours.  In a tournament playing from the whites?  He's a "4" handicap, shoots 57, 68, and 66 in a tournament which he has won 20 times.   Witnesses are two of his sons and a military buddy.   Has had 22 aces, supposedly all in tournaments.  Nah, I don't smell anything fishy at all in this story.   He's probably also won four lotteries in a row and regularly gets bj's from Megan Fox.

No chance this really happened. I hope he is extremely ashamed of himself and never gets a good bounce ever again. I am a lower handicap than him and when I get hot I can make tons of birdies and eagles but a 57.... Come on man.... If I shot 63 I wouldn't believe it myself let alone this BS.

The article says he's a plus 4, but still...

oh, okay, I missed the Plus four.   If he's a plus four the scores are very doable, especially when he's seal clubbing from the whites.   And he probably won low gross 20 times.   That's also doable.   And the 22 aces over a lifetime, also within the bounds of statistical probability.  I know a senior lady with about an 8 handicap who's had 17.

 

It's the 3 in one round, two on par fours that still bug me.

My fault I missed the +4 as well but I don't believe he is a real +4.... I'm .5 right now and I feel good about my odds if we have someone watching us closely.

I think it is believable.  The guy is an "ex marine" and their code of honour is unquestionable.  I don't think he would allow himself to cheat and obviously at +4 is a golfer of considerable ability who had a branch of the lucky tree fall off and hit him in the head.  I thought I was lucky with my 5 holes in one two in competition and three in practise were crazy lucky but as Westy has said wow just wow!

I mean it could happen, but the odds are astrononmical. My guess is he either set it up so he knew where to hit everything or there was some kind of trickery. I don't know... it's fishy, but I'm not 100 percent certain it's crap either.

There have been a few cases of double aces in the same round.   I say "a few", probably worldwide in history you could count them with all your fingers and toes.   That's how rare they are.

 

A guy was recognized by the PGA for doing it in 2014.   His odds?   67 million to 1.

 

What are the odds of Mr. Wills doing 3 and two of them on par 4's?    Probably in the hundreds of billions to 1 -- in other words, not possible.

 

So what are the odds of any other witnesses beside the Wills kids and their buddy to these aces?   Probably even lower, is my guess.   A guy makes a hole in one on a par 4, he draws a crowd on any course in any tournament on earth.  He gets his second ace on ANOTHER par 4 a few holes later?   He should notice the disciples gathering behind him trying to kiss the hem of his garment.     But I'll bet nobody was there for ace three on a lowly par three.

 

As for the Marine code of honor, I used to think so too until one of the Marine guards at the Rome embassy where I worked in the mid 80's got sent to the brig for selling secrets to the Russians.   They're humans these days.   And BTW, Oswald was a Marine as well.

 

Perhaps Mark Twain said it best in his response (adapted by me) to claims about the Book of Mormon's authenticity...

 

"I could not be more convinced if the whole Wills family had signed the scorecard."

I've heard of two in the same match

 

Two in consecutive groups.

 

And there are a few folk who've had two in the same round.

 

But I understand the scepticism given this is a score worthy of a North Korean dictator.

Love the book of Mormon adaptation and I guess I must just be too gullible and believe the best about people.  It is a character flaw I have had most of my  life and I guess I still have it.

Turns out, I've actually played this course and it's no patty cake track.   71.7/139 from the whites!  I remember it ate me alive and none of the holes he scored aces on are just roll 'em up, nurse 'em onto the greens sorts of holes.   Take a look at them from the tees.

Does looking at them make you more or less skeptical?

Problem with that theory: I was a marine. I knew a lot of shitheads. Doesn't make the story any more plausible in my book. But I think I believe it just because sometimes the stars align and crazy stuff happens. Just never to me :-(
