Look how brutally close Jim Furyk came to a hole-in-one

Jim Furyk has always been a player to wow us, whether it’s through his great play, or for his really close calls at winning tournaments or hitting amazing shots. Well, he added this gorgeous shot to his long resume of “close, but not close enough” moments.

The shot on the par-3 looked great, and even the broadcasters thought it was going to probably go in. But, the beautiful shot fell just short of an ace for the man who shot both a 59 and a 57 in his career.

But you see, one of the things that makes golf great, is that we can relate in a lot of ways with the pros. I’m sure most of us have had our share of close calls, whether it’s a near ace, or a 40 foot putt falling short, we can all have the same moments, good or bad.

We can’t all hit home runs in baseball, or dunk a basketball or have the physical ability to play football, but we all are capable of hitting the same shots as the pros. Sure, we aren’t as unbelievable as they are, but we all have a much more realistic chance of getting a hole-in-one, or hitting a long putt, just like the pros.

Sadly, none of us are going to be Miguel Angel Jimenez anytime soon (arguably the master of the hole-in-one) and Furyk found that out the hard way. Still can’t go wrong with over 20 worldwide wins, a major championship, both, a 59 and a 58(!) to his credit.

Not too shabby sir. Not too shabby at all.

So, how many hole-in-ones has Miguel Angel Jimenez had?  I would like to know.  I assume that he has had very many.
