Getting a hole-in-one is something every golfer thinks about, but the odds of getting one are not completely in your favor. According to the National Hole-In-One Registry, the odds of an average golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,000 to 1.
But one First Tee—Tulsa student didn’t let the odds bother him as he got his first hole-in-one at Mohawk Park Golf Course.
From 143 yards, 16-year-old Noah Pursell took out his 9-iron while playing hole number 6 of Pecan Valley with his grandfather and two younger brothers. It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary, until it was.
As the family stood on the tee and watched Noah swing, they saw the ball end up at the bottom of the cup.
“I may retire from golf now since I have nothing left to accomplish,” Noah laughed.
It was his first hole-in-one, and he became the 1 in 12,000 to one.
“He was very excited about it. As am I,” said Noah’s grandfather.
