Double hole in one shootout!

To put this into perspective, to date I’ve played 6,219 games of Golf Clash and have had 37 holes in one. However, that is a bit misleading as each individual game is played either on a par 4 or 5 and not a par 3. Par 3s only show up in a shootout where the 2 players tie during the regular game. However, they can also appear in tournaments, but I do not play tournaments often so I’m going to say we can ignore those. The question then becomes how often do games go to a shootout? I’m going to call it 50%, however realistically I think it’s closer to 60% or so. Regardless, that would mean I’ve made about 37 holes in one out of 3,110 games, or about 1.19% of the time. I consider myself an alright player in Golf Clash, so let’s assume my opponent has about the same rate of holes in one. So with those percentages in mind, it was absolutely insane that I had a game go into a shootout where both myself and my opponent hit a hole in one in a shootout and we had to another one. Going back to the numbers, that’s about a 0.014% chance of it happening.

My boy Blue (reference intended) choked his second shootout shot and I won, but even then I felt bad for him.

Lucky hole in one!

Hitting a hole in 1 in Golf Clash is not particularly crazy, it’s a game after all, and it makes it look easy to begin with. However this one is little better than your standard “roll it in softly” hole in one. It’s complete luck since I misjudged the forward wind, it’s hard to predict the amount of your curl, and on top of that I didn’t even hit a perfect shot I was slightly off center on my release and only hit a “great” shot which is a bit off your predicted path. This would’ve easily overshot the hole by a mile without the luck I had. It was a complete fluke but damn did it look good!

Damn close finish

I’ve had some close calls during closest to the pin shootouts but this is the first time I won (or lost) by .01 of a yard. To put that into perspective, .01 yards is 0.9144cm (0.393701 inches) and a golf ball is about 4.3cm in diameter. So I was closer by less than a quarter of the width of a golf ball (about 21.265% closer). Crazy. Sorry Marco.

My holy opponent

It feels so unfair playing against the son of God. I mean when he hit the ball into a water hazard it floated on top and he simply walked on over there and took the shot to land on the green! Glad I didn’t put money on the game.
