A follow-up to an article about your lowest golf score ever, I thought it would fun to see were people stood with their lowest golf score on one hole. The likely hood of shooting one great shot is better than for an entire round and the results were much as expected.
To shoot your lowest score ever on one hole takes, sometimes, a miracle or a well planned and executed swing. It might take a lucky bounce or two, but it only takes on twist of fate to make a good golf shot into an awesome golf shot!
I have made many awesome shots over the years. My three best were for holes in one. I have chipped in and putted for eagle on many occasions, but I am still not satisfied. There is still more to accomplish!
Every time I tee it up on a par 3, I intend on shooting a hole in one. I am sure everyone does. It is a rare thing, but not the real prize I seek. Maybe it is because I have a hole in one, but in reality it is because my real prize is an albatross.
An albatross is the most difficult score in golf! It requires two excellent shots and not just one! Through the years I have had many opportunities at an albatross. I have hit the green in 2 on par 5s several times a year. Unfortunately, I have never really been close….except once.
About 10 years ago I was playing my normal rounds. I was playing a round at Greenwood Golf Club. It was about 500 yards and well within my capabilities to reach the green in 2. I do not remember the details of my first shot, but I do remember rolling past hole and stopping 18 inches past the hole. From the fairway, I thought it was in because I could not see the ball for the pin. Alas, as I walked towards the green, I noticed my ball.
So there you have it. We have all made great shots over the years, but the elusive albatross is still in my sights. This 2 shot miracle will always be a golfing goal, but for now, I must remain patient and keep trying.
