Ever wondered which state’s residents lead the way for scoring a hole-in-one? Well, according to a study conducted by TheLeftRough, Californian’s have hit more aces than anyone else since 1999.

The study tracked nearly 30,000 data points from across the United States to reveal which Americans had scored the most hole-in-ones since 1999, with Californian’s reigning supreme with a recorded 2,515 aces.

Here’s a look at the top 10 states most likely to hit a hole-in-one and how many have been recorded in each state since 1999:

  1. California – 2,515
  2. Florida – 2,199
  3. Michigan – 1,351
  4. Texas – 1,150
  5. New York – 1,093
  6. Ohio – 1059
  7. Illinois – 1051
  8. Pennsylvania – 991
  9. North Carolina – 887
  10. Arizona – 879

The study also found that the most likely club to hit a hole-in-one was the 7 iron, with a recorded 2,938 hole-in-ones. Runner-up to the 7 iron was the 8 iron with a recorded 2,701 aces.

    Context is essential here.

    How is the data recorded? Are we taking golfers’ word for it?
    What is your sample size? All courses? Just public? Just private?

    This has to be fake news. Michigan is #3? How can a state that is covered in snow or freezing a third of the year beat a larger state (e.g. Texas) with a more temperate climate?

      You would actually be surprised. Michigan has the fourth most public golf courses in the country. Also, during the summer, it often doesn’t get dark until almost 10pm, which means you can often get a full 18 in after work. Michiganders love their golf, and they take full advantage of the warmer months. You can play there pretty much mid-March through Mid-November if you can handle 40 degree weather.

    Is it Californians or people playing in California?

      As a Californian, most people here are a bunch of liars…

        Then how do I know you’re not lying?

          He’s telling the truth, as a fellow Californian/liar.

Rory McIlroy hits back at stinging criticism from Tom Weiskopf

Published

on

Rory McIlroy recently came under attack from the 1973 Open champion Tom Weiskopf, and it has prompted a passionate response from the Ulsterman.

Earlier this week, Tom Weiskopf spoke to GolfWeek where he claimed he didn’t feel Rory McIlroy had it in him to add more than one major championship to his current tally, citing a lack of determination, as well as laying into the 4-time major champion’s putting.

“I look at Rory McIlroy and I think golf is something just for Rory to do. I’ve said it for a while now that I don’t think he’ll win much more than the four he’s got, or maybe five, because I don’t see that determination and will to be the best. I think it is there in Dustin Johnson. I think he finally figured it out and this could propel him to win all four in one year.

I don’t see any frustration. Life is good and it should be – he’s a multi, multi-millionaire and has a kid now – but I don’t see the Tiger attitude. It’s like he’s satisfied all the time. The guy is not a good putter. He can hit some putts so off line with the wrong speed. He’s technically not a good putter but one of the purest swings you’d ever want to watch play in the game. Technically, he’s superior to Dustin Johnson, but Dustin has the confidence to do it every time.

“I know Rory works out but I bet if you watched them both work out, Rory would be a lot of laughs and giggles and Dustin would be balls to the wall and forcing a little bit more on himself and that’s what he’s done.”

It’s a perspective that did not pass McIlroy by, who speaking to GolfWeek dismissed the criticism as not being a “fair assessment” and declared how he tries his heart out on every shot. 

“I’ve never met Tom Weiskopf in my life, he’s never met me, so he’s obviously making a statement based on what he sees from the outside, but I don’t think that’s a fair assessment. I’ve shown throughout my career that I care, that I want to win, that I want to be the best. And I’ve been the best. 

It’s not as if I’m out there in the clouds and not thinking about it. I try my heart out on every single shot, every single tournament that I play.”

The 31-year-old also brought attention to a club snap moment at the Zozo recently as evidence of how he can become frustrated on the course.

“I maybe deal better with disappointment than I used to. I saw the interview where he said he sees no frustration. Like, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I mean, look at the Zozo. I’m breaking clubs, so there’s a bit of frustration there. Obviously, he didn’t watch that round of golf.”
