    I would have loved to see that first one drop. Then he just walks off like no big deal. LOL. Everyone would be like "that's it?"

    Walter: Tell me Bobby, why do you play this game?
    Bobby: I play because I love it.
    Walter: Well I play for the money. I have to win. That is why every time we face each other I will always beat you.

    He was on from the beginning, I’ve seen these where they are all over the green, but his first ball was what 4 feet? And then he was just firing them in there. I would like to see the dispersion chart for all 230 balls just to see how tight he was.

    As someone who has done this on a simulator in about 1500 shots you have a better chance with a hole/club combo that allows either more forward roll or back spin. He only had about 2 feet of roll at most to actually have the ball go in. The more roll you have the less dialed in you have to be. At the same time I guess its even more impressive he did it by basically trying to dunk it. All of the holes that have lots of hole-in-ones on them have lots of ball rollout. Thinking of 16 at Augusta and the par 3 course there.

    Ha, shot 136, brutal.

    The one he made, he gave a look like, yeah, that could be the one.

    I didn't see him do any ball mark repair when he got up there.
