Whether you're a hacker or a professional, a hole-in-one is the holy grail on the golf course.
Double-figure handicappers could easily do it during their lifetimes, while a professional may never pick their ball out of the cup from the tee-shot.
According to the European Tour, it should take a professional golfer on average one in every 2,500 shots to ace a hole. Ahead of this week's Italian Open, they gave local hero Eduardo Molinari 500 balls to try and get that elusive hole-in-one.
The results are outstanding.
From almost acing the 145-yard hole on the very first shot, the 2010 Ryder Cup star was inches away on numerous occasions and even hit the pin at one point.
Growing more and more frustrated at what has happening, he even began having conversations with himself on the tee-box.
What did you do all day?
I hit nine-iron all day.
Did you make any one?
No I didn't.
How did Eduardo Molinari get on? You will have to watch the video to find out.
How many shots would it take a pro to make a hole-in-one?
