The National Hole-in-One Registry estimates that the likelihood of a Tour player hitting a hole-in-one is roughly 3,000-1. Using some rough calculations, a typical 156-man field — and 70 who make it to the weekend — play roughly 1,800 shots per week into par-3s. That math bears out that there should be a hole-in-one at a professional tournament once every 1.67 tournaments.
That math didn’t work out at the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship this week. We showed you Scott Jamieson’s hole-in-one on Saturday that netted him a new BMW M2. On Sunday at Wentworth, two more aces were made: one by Rikard Karlberg and another by James Morrison.
Morrison’s celebration was the best.
