    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.

    So fun to watch... his reactions are truly priceless!

    Shot 230 had the same swing, same rhythm as shot 1.

    The stats breakdown from ET:
    • 171 yards
    • 7 iron
    • 230 shots
    • 217 Greens in Regulation (94%)
    • 90 shots within 10ft (39%)
    • 42 shots within 5ft (18%)
    • 8 balls in the bunker (3%)
    • 14.8 ft average proximity

    Very entertaining, I imagine other people will be looking at the ET's social media/digital people.
