Description

The odds of making two holes in one in a round of golf are 67 million to one. The average golf handicap has not improved in the past twenty years. Despite these figures, golf participation increased 1.6 percent to 25.8 million people in 2001 compared to 2000, and golf spending grew to more than $23 billion. PGA Tour television ratings are up 20 percent since 1996, more than any other sport. So what is it about the game that would make a man climb a tree to hit his third shot on a hole? (Bernhard Langer did exactly that in 2001.) The fourteenth "Amazing But True Golf Facts Calendar describes those moments that make golf all worthwhile, like when four members of one family aced the very same hole. Or when David Toms made a 243-yard hole in one in the third round of the 2001 PGA Championship. But it really boils down to this explanation by Arnold Palmer: "What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I Find in the flight of a good drive."show more
