Golf Hole-in-One Maestro: Miguel Angel Jimenez

A hole-in-one is achieved in golf when a golfer puts the ball in the hole in one stroke (tee shot). This is a very rare occurrence and requires a great deal of skill, power as well as luck. Holes in one most commonly occur on par 3 holes, the shortest distance holes on a standard size golf course. Longer hitters have also accomplished this feat on longer holes, though nearly all par 4 and par 5 holes are too long for golfers to reach in a single shot.

Though this is achieved once or twice by most golfers in their whole career, for one player this shot has become a trademark. The golfer is named Miguel Angel Jimenez. Jimenez is a master of the hole-in-one as is demonstrated in this video.  He hits his shots with a lot of power and even gives spin to the ball so that it lands exactly inside the hole. His shots are usually followed by a celebratory dance. Back in May 2015, JimΓ©nez accomplished a commendable feat by becoming the first man in European Tour history to shoot ten career holes-in-one, overtaking Colin Montgomerie (nine) with a pin-point seven iron during the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club.

The Spanish professional golfer has won 21 times on the European Tour and has been a member of two triumphant Ryder Cup teams. He is one of the most entertaining golfers in the world and has been given many nicknames by fans as well as fellow professionals. To fellow pro golfers, Miguel Angel Jimenez is known as “The Mechanic” for his love of high-performance vehicles like his red Ferrari. He has also become known as “The World’s Most Interesting Golfer” because of the numerous similarities to “The World’s Most Interesting Man” from the Dos Equis commercials.
