Golfers around the world have played thousands upon thousands of rounds of golf over the decades and every time they step up to the tee on a par 3 they think, “This is the time. This time I am going to get a hole-in-one.”
Somewhere around 99.999999 percent of the time, they fail.
So it’s obviously not something that happens a lot. (Despite Cardinals pitching coach Mike Maddux hitting not one, but two in the same dang round last year.)
Tiger Woods has knocked home a generous amount of holes-in-one, but he’s played more golf than almost anyone else in the world by this point.
He even hit one, his very first, when he was just 8-years-old.
As a casual golfer that’s annoying enough, but a 4-year-old hitting a hole-in-one? I’ve been playing golf for around seven times his entire life and I’ve never gotten one!
Rocco Figaretti, a 4-year-old from West Virginia, recently got his first hole-in-one at Oglebay Park’s Par 3 course and, of course, his dad filmed it and shared it on Facebook.
“He practices all the time In the yard. To say I’m proud would be an understatement,” Mario Figaretti wrote on Facebook.
Speaking to WTOV-TV about his son Rocco’s feat, Mario added, “He swings right-handed with a left-handed grip and it works for him, so I don’t think we’re going to switch it.It’s just been really fun watching him develop a love for the game because he really does spend a lot of time out here in the year hitting golf balls.”
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Rocco began playing golf just one year ago – when he was three.
