Hole In One Facts and Records

The hole in one is golf's ultimate shot.
Hole In One

Shooting a hole in one is one of the hardest feats in sports. Acing a hole is a golfer's ultimate dream, which requires great skill and lots of luck. Check out these facts and records on golf's toughest shot.K

Longest Hole In One

The longest straight shot hole in one in golf history was hit by Robert Mitera on October 7, 1965 at the Miracle Hills Golf Club in Omaha, Nebraska. Mitera used his driver to ace the 10th hole from 444 yards! Mitera couldn't even see the flag from where he teed off. He only realized he'd aced the hole when he arrived at the green and another golfer told him his ball was in the hole.

Oldest and Youngest Golfers

Some golfers play for years without shooting a hole in one, while others manage to do it at an early age. The youngest player was barely out of diapers when he shot his first hole in one. Jake Paine was just three years old when he shot a hole in one on a 65 yard hole in Lake Forest, California. The oldest player is Harold Stilson, from Boca Raton, Florida. He was 101 years old when he aced the 108 yard 16th hole with a four iron at the Deerfield Country Club on May 16, 2001.

Most Hole In Ones

Norman Manley, of California, holds the record for most hole in ones with 59. Manley shot his first hole in one in 1964 and aced four holes in 1979. That's not too bad considering the odds of hitting a hole in one are roughly one in 40,000.

Famous First Hole In Ones

Tiger Woods was six years old when he hit his first hole in one. Michelle Wie has had six hole in ones in her short golfing career. Wie shot her first ace when she was 12.

Useless Piece of Golf Trivia

Ted Hoz of Baton Rouge, Lousiana, USA, has collected 69,384 golf balls since 1986. If the balls were set in a line side by side, they would extend almost 2 miles (3.2 km).
