Lucky Bounce Leads to Incredible Hole in One on a Par 4 at Aussie Pro-Am (Video)
Even the best golfers in the world need a bit of luck to sink a hole in one. However, Australian golfer Richard Green needed more than a bit to sink a hole in one on a par 4 at the Vic Open Pro-Am this week.
Green’s tee shot on the 15th hole of Thirteenth Beach Golf Links outside Melbourne was headed way left of the pin. It looked like the thing would either overshoot the green or end up in a bunker. But then, all of a sudden, the ball hit something, changed directions, and rolled straight into the cup. The result was an extremely rare albatross hole in one.
Green didn’t even realize what had happened.
“I thought I would hit a driver and see what happens,” he explained afterward. “I just pushed it a little bit, it was a good shot, but I knew it was going in the bunker so I was completely oblivious to the fact that it had made its way to the hole somehow.”
Take a look:
Hopefully Green didn’t use up all his luck on this one shot. The actual tournament starts today.
