Hole In One International would like to take this time to congratulate Kirk Triplett on his first career Champions Tour win in the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. on Sunday, July 8, 2012! According to The Golf Channel, this win means Triplett has become the sixth player to earn wins on the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour, and Web.com Tour in his career.
Triplett, founding shareholder of Hole In One International, made an early Eagle… and closed with a 6-under 66, making for a two-stroke victory over Mark McNulty!
According to Triplett in this article in USA Today, “To win anywhere is special. But to win at Pebble Beach is extra special. To do it in my first Champions Tour try is great.”
Seems like the big “5-0” has been gracious to Triplett thus far! Congratulations again and we all look forward to seeing many more successes from you in the future!

Best of luck with your golf tournament this year!
The United States Open Championship (U.S. Open) begins soon (June 11th-17th, to be exact) and will be held at the Olympic Club’s Lake Course in San Francisco, California this year. Hole In One International is anxiously awaiting to see which one of the amazing 156 worldwide golfers will go home with the renowned trophy this year. Be sure to tune in to NBC or ESPN to watch the excitement for yourself — this isn’t an event you’ll want to miss!
Did you know that the first-ever U.S. Open was played on October 4, 1895, on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island? The 36-hole competition played in the span of one day and consisted of ten professionals and one amateur. The winner was 21-year-old Horace Rawlins from England, who had arrived in the United States in January that year to take up a position at the host club. His earnings consisted of $150 cash out of a prize fund of $335, plus a $50 gold medal. His club acquired the Open Championship Cup trophy, which was presented by the USGA.
Who do you think the player(s) to watch this year are? Let us know by leaving us a comment on any of our social sites: Facebook, Twitter or Google+!
Insuring a hole-in-one, million-dollar shootout or putting contest at your golf tournament this season? Have touring professionals in your event? Make sure not to exclude them from all the fun — Hole In One International will still allow you to insure them!
The price of one touring professional is approximately 5x the price of one amateur. When we take a look at the three hole in ones that were made during the 2012 Masters Par 3 Tournament a few months back, it only makes sense that they’d cost a bit more to insure, given their skill level. Touring professionals are a much higher liability in comparison to an amateur player. Did you know that the odds of a hole in one for amateurs are 13,000 to 1 while for professionals, it’s only 2,500 to 1? How’s that for putting things into perspective?
Hole In One International also allows club professionals to participate in any of our insured contests as well. While not as expensive as a touring professional, they’re still pricier than an amateur — 3x the price, to be exact. But again, just because they’re in your golf outing doesn’t mean you have to have them sit out while everyone else gets to take a swing (or putt) for some major dough. Nobody likes being left out … especially when it comes to being able to score a big prize!
