Watch every Ryder Cup hole-in-one

In the 41 playings of the Ryder Cup since its inception in 1927, there have been 956 matches. A conservative estimate from that would give us more than 100,000 total shots taken in the history of the tournament.

Six of those have been holes-in-one.

That’s slightly under the average odds for a hole-in-one (12,000 to 1, according to the National Hole-in-One Registry), but still an impressive number. More impressive is how they’ve been spread out. Of the six, four came from just two Ryder Cups.

Here’s a video of every one, with information on each below:
