How to Ace a Shot in Three Easy Steps

Golf outing hole contests

The odds of getting a hole in one in golf are so great that making such a shot will arguably be the greatest feat in a golfer’s career. According to Golf Digest, an amateur’s odds of a hole in one are a whopping 12,500 to one.

So yes, what’s being said here is that acing a hole is hard, but what’s also being said is that there’s a chance. If there wasn’t, hole in one contests wouldn’t need contest insurance now would they?

Acing a hole isn’t easy, but with a bit of methodology, you can increase your chances, and maybe even wind up taking home a hole in one contest’s fabulous prize. Here’s a few tips to help.

Go to a Driving Range.

First things first, you’re going to need to practice your driving. If you can’t send a ball sailing to the other end of the green, then you’ve got no hope even playing golf, let alone winning a hole in one contest. There, you can practice with medium to long irons, which make many golfers skittish and often go unused in actual play. You also need to work on the fundamentals, and get that aggressive swing down pact.

Get in the Right Mind Set.

According to the philosophical law of attraction, like attracts like. If you focus on something, you can bring positive or negative results. Whether you’re walking into an 18 round session with a few friends, a hole in one contest, or even just the driving range, you need to be confident and believe that you can ace it. If you believe otherwise, you’ll do otherwise.

Use the Right Form.

Practice and confidence can go a long way, but you’ll have no hope of coming out on top in a hole in one contest if you use the wrong form. That being said, square yourself up with the target — face your left shoulder at the hole and your left foot underneath your left shoulder. Take a full swing that won’t leave the ball short. If you miss, miss long, as the backspin might bring it back and pull it in.

Yes, it’s statistically difficult, but you do in fact have a shot at winning a hole in one contest if you practice, get in the right mind set, and use the right form. If you have any questions about making an ace, feel free to ask in the comments.
