Flight of the Condor
18 July 2023
The following may sound unbelievable, but there were independent witnesses of all these events. In one case, they even saw what happened on the green!
A 'condor' in golf is a score of four (4!) under par. This can be achieved by scoring a hole-in-one on a par-5 hole, or by taking two strokes on a par-6 hole, which are themselves as rare as hen's teeth.
Golfing condors have been recorded six times around the world over the last 60 years in the USA, the UK and Australia. Until 2020, they were all par-5 'aces'.
