Best Non-TV Story: Golfer Hits 26 Million-to-One Shot

Jul 21, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The sport of golf has a new superhero, and his name is Rich Schultz. reports Comcast.net Sports.

Schultz, 58, did something during a round of golf with friends Sunday that defies the odds, and then some. Playing at Bethlehem Golf Club in Bethlehem, Pa., he capped off his 18 holes of golf with not one, but two holes-in-one.

U.S. Hole In One, a Bryn Mawr, Pa. company that insures hole-in-one contests, calculates the odds of cupping two aces in a single round at 26,045,834-to-1, the story reports.

Schultz also shot a career-low round of 3-under 68, according to the story.


  1. Dr. Elie Gindi, an Internist from Los Angeles did the same thing last year. He was playing as a guest at Brentwood Country Club. When he called home after the second hole in one, his son thought he had lost his mind, reporting the same hole in one twice!

  2. Perhaps that now makes the odds 26 million to 2?

  3. It is holes-in-one.

  4. Any way one says it, it’s quite a feat. And yes,Hannah,you are correct–we fixed that. Thanks!
