Edoardo Molinari attempts to make hole-in-one within 500 golf balls

How many shots and how many golf balls might it take a professional golfer to make a hole-in-one? The European Tour decided to find out…

The odds of an average golfer making an ace are roughly one in 100,000, while stats suggest a European Tour pro's chances are closer to one in 2,500. Still, it’s quite a big task to successfully pull off, even with 500 golf balls lined up to be hit.

Step forward Edoardo Molinari.

Ahead of the Italian Open (the fifth Rolex Series event in 2017), the European Tour challenged the three-time European Tour winner to try his luck. With a day and 500 pristine golf balls to play, Molinari stepped up to the 145-yard par three.

Could he beat the odds and find that one perfect shot? Find out in the video below…
