24 hours to hit a hole in one from 125 yards - $10 million if you do, but 1 year in jail if you don't...

Saw this on Instagram (credit to golfdouchebag).  You have 24 hours to hit a hole-in-one on a 125 yard par 3.  You get unlimited shots.  If you succeed you get $10 million.  If you fail, you are going to jail for a year.  

Are you doing it?

 

A lot of people replied that it's a no-brainer take the money kind of thing.  But in reality, that could be the longest day of your life.  What if you get the sh**ks?  

I'll pass but what would you do?

Zero chance i'd do it. Odds of a hole in one are 12500 to 1 or so. I am far , far , far better than most of you jabronis. However even if you say 7500 to 1 --That's still a shot every what, 11 seconds?

 

A year in prison regardless of what it's for is a criminal record, so i'd lose my job. I'd far rather have my job that i do, than a coin flip essentially for 10M or basically working customer service the rest of my life.

 

It's really not even a discussion.

 

Honestly to consider it , it'd probably have to be 100M+

If there was a nice funnel pin position the odds would be better, but just watch any of the Euro Tour HIO challenges to see just how hard this is.

 

Hard pass.

On a serious note, I wouldn't want to take that on.  125y is outside of the comfort range.  And considering it's about 25 yrs since my last HIO, the odds are that it wouldn't happen.

I’d do it if it was one of those nice executive white collar prisons with golf sims for exercise.
 

Our range has small greens and flags every 25 yards. Usually I can hit the 125 yard flag within 15 minutes or so. IMO shots at this distance are similar to putts to some extent, in that you can zero in on the target line and swing speed pretty quickly. Also use a 9 iron to let the ball roll out. Most of the UTuber’s are using wedges with zero roll, which makes it wildly more difficult.

Depends on what prison I'm going to if it's like Bastoy Prison:

or one of those Nordic or Oceanic learning prisons where you learn a skill(s) while there vs just sitting in your cell I'll do it. But if it's like Arizona's Tent City prison then no way in hell I'm doing it.

My initial thought was it was a no-brainer... but after about 10 seconds of thought it's a pretty easy pass
