What are the approximate odds of making a hole in one?
I found this article that talks about a Golf Digest article that states the odds- September 2005 Issue Michel Hepp What Are the Odds of Making a Hole-In-One? Golf From Brent Kelley, Your Guide to Golf. Some people seem to make aces left and right. Other golfers go their whole golfing careers without one. Just how hard is it to make a hole-in-one? Exactly what are the odds? The odds vary, it turns out, depending on who you ask, but we're willing to be that the odds aren't as long as you might have expected. A. The odds of making a hole-in-one do vary somewhat, depending on the source and the numbers used for calculating the odds. One problem is that nobody knows the true number of aces made every year. There are numerous organizations that track holes-in-one, but not every ace that is made is reported. And, as we all know, not every ace that is reporter was actually made! In 1999, Golf Digest reported, "One insurance company puts a PGA Tour pro's chances at 1 in 3,756 and an amateur's at 1 in 12,750." That same issue reported that the "odds of an amateur making two holes-in-one in a round are 9,222,500 to 1." Ireland's National Hole in One Club puts the odds a little higher for one ace: "The estimated odds of acing a hole with any given swing are one in 33,000." And an article in the magazine Navy Newsstand, citing Sports Illustrated as its source, put the odds at 45,000 to 1 for "scoring a hole-in-one on a typical par-3 golf hole." What about the insurance companies that sell "hole-in-one insurance" to tournament promoters? They must know the odds, right? One such company, SCA Promotions, says the odds of a golfer holing out from 150 yards is somewhere from 10,000 to 15,000 to 1. But as close to an official source as exists on this topic is Golf Digest. The odds Scheid came up with were lower than any others cited above: 5,000 to 1. If you play 1,000 rounds in your life, according to Scheid, you have a 20-percent chance of recording an ace. If you play 20,000 rounds, you're odds are 1:1. The Golf Digest study provided many great nuggets of information, even breaking the odds down by quality of play: Tour player making an ace: 3,000 to 1 Low-handicapper making an ace: 5,000 to 1 Average player making an ace: 12,000 to 1 Some other highlights from Scheid's calculations: Average player acing a 200-yard hole: 150,000 to 1 Two players from the same foursome acing the same hole: 17 million to 1 One player making two holes-in-one in the same round: 67 million to 1 Source: Primary source is Golf Digest; more info on acer odds and holes-in-one can be found in the Sept. 2005 issue.

Answer Slightly better than one in a million, for US residents. Much longer odds for individuals from other nations.There are 360 active roster players at any time during the season, and dozens more on injured reserve or recently released.
There are 28.35 grams in one ounce. Which works out to 454 grams in a pound. More Opinions 500 grams to 1 pound, 16 ounces to 1 pound, equals 31.25 grams to an ounce. 1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams. 1 pound = 453.59237 grams. 1 cubic centimeter of water weighs 1 gram. 28.35 grams. There are… approximately 28.349 grams in an ounce. Another answer a paper clip is approximately 1 gram ^_^ also a pea a piece of lead shot about 5mm diameter a couple of large pinches of salt. There are 28.0 grams in an ounce of weed. (MORE)

Overall, not very good. There are TONS of bands out there, but (relatively speaking) only a few make it big . However, it really depends on your definition of "making it". A new documentary is being filmed that features bands from Phoenix, AZ that have since "made it" on a national level. Man…y relatively "unknown" bands have fulfilled their desires to go on tour and perform for audiences across the country. Start by performing locally, as there are many venues that prefer to feature local bands. This will also give you an idea as to how popular your music is. Are you hoping to "quit your day job" and make a decent living doing nothing but performances? This will only happen if you are very good AND very lucky. Are you hoping to gather a moderate fan base, sell a few CDs, a couple songs on iTunes, and go on tour? Then your odds are relatively decent, and it's a matter of determination. There are not any hard figures to show what the odds are, exactly, as some bands are obviously a lot more talented (and better financed) than others. (MORE)
Depends, If you are asking about going pro (d-league, NBA, euroleague) about 1 in 40,000 for d league and euro and 1 in 100,000 for NBA. if taller than 6' 6" odds are about 1 in 1,000 for d and euro and about 1 in 50,000 if you have skill along with height that also helps the odds. BTW im 13 and i… have an Adidas sponsorship so my odds are about 1 in 300 for d and euro an about 1 in 500 for nba. also dats how i know dis stuff (MORE)
well you wouldn't need any to make a black holes to make binary systems but what do make binary systems are two stars.
You can't. Simpson's Rule can only be used when N is even. This is because the formula is derived by summing the area under parabolas using three points, or two subintervals.
The odds are extremely low and hard to qualify, but I heard one scientist say that there was more chance of him winning the national lottery 10 times in a row. Also, although the conditions inside the LHC may indeed be conducive, in theory, to forming mini black holes these would be a world away fro…m the black holes that are formed when a star collapses - our normal point of reference. The energy within the LHC would only be capable of forming teeny weeny black holes, if indeed it is possible at all, and these would blink in and out of existence in an instant. There is absolutely no chance of them having the power to suck us all in!

When you add all the odd numbers between one to twenty the sum total is hundred how will you make two group of five odd numbers so that you get sum total of fifty?
You can't find five odd numbers that add up to fifty; the sum of five odd numbers will always be odd.
3 out of 51 or 16 to 1. regardless of what first card you are dealt there are 3 cards left in the deck that give you a pair. Since after the first card is dealt there are 51 cards left in the deck, the odds are 3 out of 51 or 16 to 1.
The odds have been calculated as a direct corollation to the query of what are the odds that you are going to nail cheerleading twin sisters at the home coming dance.
yes, because two and zero are even numbers. it goes like a pattern starting at zero to the top.
90% of golfers can't break 80 so think of how many golfers are around the world, take that 10% and put it against you and your scoring average against that 10%
A number is odd if it is 1, 3, 5, 7, etc. A number is not odd when it is 2, 4, 6, 8, etc. It is an odd number simply because it is not an even amount.and also if the number is a two digit number and if it ends with 2,4,6,8 then the number is even else its odd.
My son who attends a junior college and on the golf team was playing a round with two other members. He was the first to tee off and they thought the ball might have gone in, they checked and he did get a hole in one, they went back so the other two kids could tee off and the 3rd one also hit a hole… in one. Two players same hole same time. Pretty rare I would say! (MORE)
It is an idiom that means one of a number of listed things or concepts is different from the others in the list in some characteristic way. For example, in the list "one, two, three, right" the word "right" is the odd one out because it is not a number. In the group "gold, silver, copper, zinc,… mercury" the odd one may be mercury because it is the only one of the five metals that is liquid at room temperature. (MORE)

This is approximately one gigabyte. In reality, one gigabyte is 1024 MB which gives approximately 1 073 741 824 bytes, but especially when purchasing storage media, one billion bytes is one gigabyte.

Probably about the same as getting into the NFL. About 1% of the population do that.
An odd number is one that cannot be divided by 2 exactly therefore 1 is an odd number
Hundreds of golfers have had hole in ones on par fours believe it or not. But there has only been one in Professional competition, this was achieved in the 2001 FBR Open at TPC Scottsdale. Andrew Magee hit his tee shot on the Par 4 17th whilst the group in front were still on the green. One of the …players on the green turned and walked away, as he did so, Magee's ball hit his putter and was deflected into the hole, as one of the caddies picked up the flag. (MORE)

The probability depends on too many factors that are unknown. There is no information on the course and therefore the par scores. There is no information on the foursomes' handicaps either.
The answer depends on the course - or the par values for each of the holes - as well as your skills, and luck.
I doubt that it is gonna be a circle but if you want it connected to a binder then just use the ring on the binder and stab it against the paper, but to make just a regular hole on a paper, i would recommend scissors of use your finger to jab a hole in the paper.
I just read that the odds of shooting 2 consecutive holes in one were on the order of 1 to 10,000,000. The story was about a guy who shot 2 in a row. I believe that, on the pro circuit, Arnold Palmer was the only one to do it . . . it could have been that he shot 2 holes in one in the same round, th…ough. (MORE)
These are independent events, so the probability of both of them happening would be the probability of one multiplied by the probability of the other. According to insurance odds, the probability of an average golfer getting a hole in one in any given round is 1/3,125. The probability of being struc…k by lightning is 1/576,000. Thus the probability of both of these things happening is 1/(3,125 x 576,000) = 1/1,800,000,000 or one in 1.8 billion. (MORE)
On all my shoes, they come in pairs - one on the left and one on the right. Some of my shoes have an even number of pairs and some have an odd number of pairs, but there is always an even total number of holes. Except for some of my trainers which also have an extra hole in the tongue but thi…s is usually in the form of a pair of cuts allowing the shoestring to go through the tongue and back again, so it could technically be called two holes, keeping the total number of holes even.

Are you kidding ? Neither of them belongs to this group. The circle is out because it's the only one in the group without straight sides. The square is out because it's the only one in the group with straight sides.
An approximation of some mathematical object (such as the number 2 , the function sin( x ) , a circle, or something else) is another mathematical object (such as value 1.414, a function x â x 36 , a regular polygon with 64 sides) that has almost the same value or function values or shape as t…he original object. There are many different reasons for making an approximation. It can be that we have no way to know the exact value, for example if we solve an equation by plotting agraph on a piece of paper and read the value from the x-axis, then we only get an approximation of the exact value. It can be that we know the exact value, say e +2 , but we can't use that exact value, perhaps we need to draw a line of length e +2 cm, then we need a numerical approximation of the original value. 107 is an approximation of the number of seconds in a year. Perhaps we don't know how to draw the graph of the sin function, then we can make an approximation with another function that has approximately the same function values within some range of the argument. In every approximation we introduce an error by definition, since we are not using the correct value. This error can sometimes be controlled; for instance we make a smaller error if we use 3.1416 instead of 4 as the value of . The magnitude of the error that can be accepted depends on what we wish to do with the approximation. When we wish to approximate a function by another function, we can have different requirements on the approximation. Sometimes, the approximating function may be required to pass through the actual points of the function, in which case we are dealing with a class of approximation techniques known as interpolation. When merely having common points is not enough, one may require that the approximating function to have the same derivatives as the actual function (see Taylor series). Other times, we may wish for the values of the approximation to differ from the exact values by less than a certain amount within a certain interval (see uniform convergence), or the approximations to be as close to the actual amounts as possible (see least square approximations).

It's difficult to answer because no one knows the true number of holes-in-one shot each year. However, the generally accepted chances for an amateur hole-in-one at 1:12,750. Since each hole-in-one is an independent occurrence and a previous hole-in-one does not affect the probability of another hol…e-in-one occurring, the answer can be found by multiplying 12,750 by the four occurrences. Or, p(4)=1:12,750 x 12,750 x 12,750 x 12,750 or 1:26,426,566,406,250,000. This number will vary greatly depending on which initial hole-in-one probability used. (Numbers range from 2,756 for PGA Tour players to over 30,000 for amateurs, giving a range between 1 in 57 trillion and 1 in 810 quadrillion). (MORE)
Six. That;s why they are called Sixths, not Eighths or anything else. oh and its one WHOLE not a hole :) sorry :P
Prime numbers are integers that are not divisible by anything except one and themselves. All prime numbers (excepting two) are odd.
The best way is to knit the bar between the stitches. This is known as a 'bar increase', and there are how-to's and videos online. If you pull your knitting apart slightly, you'll see a bar just beneath the point on the needles where you are knitting. Put your right needle under this bar, lift it… up and put it on your left needle. Knit it as normal. Ta-da! Now you have one more stitch. (MORE)
It means that if you are trying to make two equal teams, and you have an odd number of people, one person will not be able to be on either team and is said to be out. He's the odd man out.
you can't divide it by 2 and have a even number anwser also all even numbers are or end in 0,2,4,6,8(0 is the one exeption/ it can end in 0 and be even however the actual number 0 is not an even or od number)
There are many professional golfers that have made a hole in one in their career. One of the more popular professional golfer is Tiger Woods. They have either done it in a professional tournament or in a casual game.
yes they can . In terms of probability, one is taken to mean absolute certainty, something that must happen, equivalent to a 100% probability (100 out of 100 is equal to one). Hence, odds cannot be greater than one.

Take the probability to get a hole in one (on the first try), and raise that probability to the 18th power. This is a rough estimate, since some holes are more difficult than others. The probability of getting a hole in one will obviously depend on the skill of the golf player.
the odds of getting a hole in one is 12,500 in 1. This is a veryslim chance.
When we talk about being the odd one out, it means you don't have the traits as others being compared to.
If a golfer hits the ball from the tee, and it lands into the holeon the green, it is classed as a hole in one.
