Kevin Sorbo snags hole-in-one to end 2010

Whether or not anyone knows anything about golf, getting a hole-in-one seems difficult… And it is! Although the term is self-explanatory, people unfamiliar with the game may not realize that dropping a little white ball in an only slightly larger in-ground cup from a couple hundred yards away with a stick (club/iron) with one shot (stroke) is known as a hole-in-one.

The hole-in-one is an elusive creature, achieved sometimes by chance, but, mostly through skill. Golf is a game of tenacity, patience (although I’ve heard and said a few curses on the course and seen some wild antics from frustrated golfers!), practice, coordination, and judgment, among other things.

It’s also a game of love. Why else do people put themselves through 18 holes of continuous aggravation, sometimes with seemingly few rewards?

Kevin remains one of the top golfers on the Celebrity Circuit. He plays in tournaments paired with pros, charity events, his own great tournament, and alone on the course whenever possible.

Clearly, his efforts paid off as he achieved his second hole-in-one a few days ago. Wow!

Here’s his Twitter post from earlier this morning:

“I am in Hawaii. And I got a hole in one on a course I have played many times thru the years!! 203 yards with a 4 iron. Now that rocks!”

How cool is that????

Check out his tweet from June 18, 2009, upon obtaining his first hole-in-one:

“oh yeah. i got my first hole in one today!!! i have played this game for years. nary a one. 235 yards away and i put it in 4 inch cup!”

Is there no limit to this guy’s many talents?!

Congratulations, Kevin! Thanks for sharing the fantastic news with us. What a great way to end a prosperous year!

And… way to go!!!!!!

    A hole-in-one is more a matter of chance than skill. The “skill” involves hitting the ball hard enough to land on the green, but not overshoot the hole.

    My understanding is that holes-in-one are common, occurring about 1% of the time.

    Thanks, William. I guess to me it seems so difficult since I’m just happy to get the ball off the tee! (Oh, man…)

    I think it’s great that Kevin got another hole-in-one,his second is 18 months! For any golfer,a hole-in-one is a dream come true and I know Kevin is thrilled!

    I’ve never aced a hole in all the times I’ve been on the links but I appreciate the skills of those who do. I applaud Kevin for a great accomplishment. I’m sure he had witnesses. šŸ˜‰

    I’d certainly be interested in the usual… Kevin’s club selection, how many yards, course conditions. šŸ˜€

    Needless to say, Kevin’s second hole-in-one was a great way to end 2010 and get ready for an even better 2011.
