Have any Club Professionals participating in your upcoming golf outing?  Great news!  If you’re insuring a hole-in-one contest, Million Dollar Shoot-out or putting contest, you don’t have to exclude them from participating and/or possibly winning the insured prize that’s at stake!

That’s right: Hole In One International will happily insure any/all Club Professionals in your event!  Sure, they’re a little more costly to insure (3x the price of 1 amateur golfer, to be exact) given their skill level; however, when you take the odds into consideration, it makes perfect sense.

Did you know that the odds of an amateur golfer making a hole-in-one are roughly 13,600 to 1, while for professional golfers, those odds are lessened all the way down to 2,500 to 1!

Touring Professionals At Your Golf Tournament

SandtrapJuliInsuring 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!

Have any other questions about including amateurs, club professionals and/or touring professionals at your golf tournament?  Feel free to give us a call at 800-827-2249 or email us!

Lee Trevino and The Masters…

LeeTrevino“When it comes to the game of life, I figure I’ve played the whole course.”  — Lee Trevino

There’s no doubt about it…  there are quite a few pro golfers out there who have “deserved” to win The Masters over the years, but for one reason or another, haven’t quite met the mark.

One of the professional golfers who first comes to our minds here at Hole In One International is Lee ‘Buck’ Trevino.

Trevino, the self-taught Mexican-American golf icon, made quite a name for himself during his career.  With his Vardon Trophy win, 2 PGAs; 29 PGA Tour wins, 2 Open Championships and 2 US Opens (just to name a few of his major accomplishments), his skill — while unique and not quite ‘par for the course’ — goes unquestioned.

Having had the chance to play at Augusta National, it’s a wonder why he never won The Masters since the beginning of his professional career in 1967.  Not even being struck by lightning at the 1975 Western Open and having a major spinal disk surgery stopped this man from going on to achieve many more victories during his professional career.

It’s because of these reasons (and many more) that we here at Hole In One International feel that Trevino is one of the greatest golfers never to win The Masters.

And chances are that we’re not alone in feeling that way.  What do you think?

Who, in your opinion, should have won a past Masters — or still has a chance at winning one — yet hasn’t?

Three Hole-In-Ones Made During The 2012 Masters Par 3 Tournament

Teeing OffThe event may have been cancelled early on due to weather; however, Mother Nature herself could not stop professional golfers Mark Wilson, Craig Stadler and Thomas Bjørn from achieving the statistically near-impossible: all three golfers made a hole in one today, April 4, 2012 during the 2012 Masters Par 3 Tournament.

Looking to insure a hole-in-one contest at your next Par 3 Tournament?  We’ve got you covered!  For as little as $150 per hole, you can insure a great grand prize… and Hole In One International will pick up the tab if one, two or even three of your golfers make a hole in one on any insured hole(s)!  Contact us today for a free, no-obligation quote at 800-827-2249… or email us if you have any questions!

Kirk Triplett: What You Likely Never Knew …

When the name Kirk Triplett comes to mind, you likely think about the fact that he’s a 3-time PGA Tour winner.  Or maybe your mind wanders to his signature “bucket hat” that he’s known for wearing.  The fact that he has approximately $14,089,515 in career earnings is definitely noteworthy as well.  But did you know that he’s also part owner of Hole In One International?

That’s right: Triplett has been on-board with Hole In One International as part owner since 2004.

Triplett turns 50 on March 29 and will make his Champions Tour debut at the Encompass Insurance Pro-Am of Tampa Bay at TPC Tampa Bay in Lutz, Fla.

People are now learning more than ever that there’s a lot more to Triplett than meets the eye.
