Hole in One Probability

what are the odds that a person can get two holes in one

vs one in a lifetime of golf?

This is usually not the case.

In 3/22/2008 (the day of President election)

I got another hole in one on the same field of

Tao Yuan Golf Country Club, South #1

My eldest son said : If the probability of getting a

hole-in-one is P1 and the probability of getting a hole-in-one on

the second hole is P2, So the probability of getting two holes in one

is P1 x P2 which makes the cumulative probability

since both P1 and P2 are individually quite small.

But i think in most cases, past events do not make

future events more difficult. Getting one hole-in-one

does not make it any harder to get another

hole-in-one.
