Weekly Reader Poll: Hole-in-one or Albatross?

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood celebrates a rare albatross on the European Tour in 2015.
Would you rather make a hole-in-one or an albatross?

It's a question that conjures thoughts of great elation and satisfaction for golfers, even though many may go their entire lives without achieving either.

In this morning's final round of the Players Championship in Florida, Spaniard Rafa Cabrera Bello made a very rare albatross on the par-five 16th while his countryman Sergio Garcia made a dramatic hole-in-one on the famous 17th during the first round.

An albatross is, of course, a score of three under par on one hole - often referred to by Americans as a 'double eagle'.

It's more unlikely for a given golfer to make an albatross in his or her lifetime because it requires enough length to be able to reach par-fives in two or par-fours in one, but whether an albatross has the same prestige as an ace, is up for debate in this week's iSeekGolf Weekly Reader Poll.


Question: Which would you rather achieve on the golf course?
  • A hole-in-one
  • An Albatross
  • Victory in your local club championship
