• Albatross. Three under par score at a hole. Known as a 'double-eagle' in the US. In golf, an albatross is something that most golfers will never have the fortune to make. If you were to hole out three shots below par on a par-4, this accomplishment would technically be called a hole-in-one rather than an albatross.


  • But, technically speaking, a hole-in-one on a par-5 is a score of 4-under par, so it could, in theory, be called a double albatross or a triple eagle. Those just sound goofy, though. So, sticking with the avian theme of golfs scoring terms (birdie, eagle, albatross), a par-5 ace is called a condor.

    Beside above, what is a hole in one on a par 6 called? A condor would be a hole-in-one on a par-five (typically by cutting over a dogleg corner), a two on a par-six or a three on a par-seven (neither of which has ever been achieved as of December 2016). Par-sixes are exceptionally rare, as are par-sevens.

    Additionally, has there ever been a hole in one on a par 4?

    In the history of the PGA Tour, there has been only one hole-in-one to date on a par-4 hole. It happened at TPC Scottsdale, home of the Phoenix Open (then called the FBR Open). And it happened in an amazing way.

    Has anyone got a hole in one on a par 5?

    A condor was scored without cutting over a dogleg by Mike Crean at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver, Colorado, in 2002, when he holed his drive at the 517 yard par-5 9th. This is longest hole in one on record, although it was of course aided by the altitude and thin air of mile-high Denver.
