The odds of an amateur golfer hitting a hole-in-one on a par 3 course are generally estimated at 12,500-to-1. For a pro, the odds improve to 2,500-to-1. It’s a longshot regardless of your ability.
Don’t tell Rocco Figaretti the odds! The four-year old aced a par 3 at Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia this past Friday.
HOLE IN ONE!!!! Hole #1 at Oglebay’s Par three course. Rocco = 4yrs old. 8/21/20 He practices all the time In the yard. To say I’m proud would be an understatement!Posted by Mario Figaretti on Friday, August 21, 2020
His dad told WTOV news that Rocco started practicing golf when he turned three. He took him to the course for what sounds like his first round there and the little guy aced this one! If you pay attention on the video, you’ll notice Rocco is using a left-handed grip even though he’s swinging from the right.
One tradition surrounding a hole-in-one is that the golfer who aced the hole has to buy drinks for the rest of the group. Milks all around, courtesy of Rocco!
