It's just not fair - 3 hole in one's in the same day

Recommended Posts

Saw this over on golf.com today and figured I'd share.

 

I've been golfing 30+ years and consider myself somewhat decent.  I've never had a hole in one.  I've come close a couple times but that's it.  

 

Then there is Ali Gibb.  She's an English golfer who got not one, or two, but THREE hole in one's on the same day, and in her club championship to boot!  Check it out below.

Via golf.com:

 

For those of you who have made a hole-in-one, congrats. For those of you who haven't, this story might sting a little. An English golfer made not one, not two, but three holes-in-one on the same day this week.

Ali Gibb is the lucky lady, a 51-year-old from London, who accomplished the feat at Croham Hurst GC, just south of London. Gibb was competing in the Ladies Club Championship, a 36-hole competition, when she aced the 5th hole of her day. Hours later, she would ace the 135-yard hole again, and a short while after that, she added another hole-in-one on the 11th. We would like to apologize to anyone who hasn't made an ace yet; this isn't fair.

A player like myself can make a fluke hole-in-one.

 

A player who makes three in one round, however, can't possibly be a player like myself.

 

The lady has to have serious game.

I haven't even see a hole in one ( in real life not TV) let alone have one or more.

Never had a hole in one. Many close calls, but no cigar... Yet.

 

I don't know how this is possible.

 

How long were the holes?

 

Were the par 3's just chip shots.

 

It isn't fair!!!  :(

Have 2, 20 years apart.

 

Scared the flagstick many of times, inches on several occasions.

 

3 in a day... that's just insane.

There was an older gentleman in our men's group ~15 years ago - 80 years old, played to a 36 handicap and hit it ~150 yards off the tee.

 

One afternoon, he gets his first hole in one on #13 - 125 yard 5-wood that was reportedly on the ground the last 75 yards. Next day he does the same thing with the same club on #8 - 120 yards. They weren't in the same day but he only played 12 holes in between his first and second ace.

 

It's a crazy game...

It's more than amazing, it is a statistical absurdity.  We're talking 1 in the billions odds here.  :o

That is amazing. She danm well better have won the tournament.

I think you can tell by my incredulity that I have never had an ace. Scared the hole many times but luck just isn't on my side.

yes she did.

 

40+ years playing this game and I'm also 0-fer in the hole-in-one department.

 

Now I have holed out from the fairway for eagle on five separate occassions, but par threes remain elusive to my golf game.

 

Watching Rory McIlroy have a hole in one at #16 at the Masters in the Monday practice round in 2016 is my only hole in one I've witnessed in person. Having 10,000 people witness it with you and go absolutely bananas is one highlight in life I will never forget.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
