The Odds of Making Two Holes In One In the Same Round of Golf
There is no exact data but…
It is true that the chances of making two holes in one in the same round of golf are extremely low? While there is no exact data on the odds of achieving this feat, most estimates put the odds at around 67 million to 1.
To put this in perspective, the odds of being struck by lightning in the United States are approximately 1 in 700,000. This means that the odds of making two holes in one in the same round of golf are much lower than the odds of being struck by lightning. The average golfer is actually more likely to get struck by lightning TWICE than they are to get two hole-in-ones in the same round of golf.

Using a pitching wedge, she made her second hole-in-one on the eighth hole, a 115-yard par 3. The Guinness Book of World Records recognized Komma’s remarkable as the first time a female golfer has made two holes in one in the same round during a professional event.
While the odds of achieving this feat are extremely low, there have been a few other golfers throughout history who have accomplished it. However, it remains a rare and impressive achievement that most golfers will never experience in their lifetime.
It’s important to note that the probability of achieving this feat can vary based on numerous factors. The biggest factor would be the skill level of the golfer. The course layout and the specific conditions on the day of the round are also major factors.

The odds of making two hole-in-ones in the same round of golf may be low, but never zero.
