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.

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.

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

• 1 hole in one


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