It might be time for Richard Green to invest in some lottery tickets.
The Australian golfer is an unknown in the golfing world, but that might change after he recorded one of the most improbable hole-in-ones you’ll ever see.
Playing at the Oates Vic Open on the Australasian Tour at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links in Australia, Green opted to hit driver on the par-4 15th hole.
It didn’t look it at first, but that turned out to be a great idea. Green’s tee shot went awry, but that’s when his luck really took over. The ball bounced once in the fairway before hopping into the bunker. Then, somehow, it took a bounce out of the bunker and made a beeline for the stick.
And, of course, the ball disappeared for the rare par-4 ace.
“I noticed the tee was up from where we played it last year, I thought it was a good opportunity to get up near the green and contend for birdies during the week,” Green said via PGA.org.
“I thought I would hit a driver and see what happens, I just pushed it a little bit, it was a good shot, but I knew it was going in the bunker so I was completely oblivious to the fact that it had made its way to the hole somehow.”
