Ever heard of a condor in golf? No worries, if not. A condor is the rarest achievement in the sport. That’s what a hole-in-one on a par-5 or a two on a par-6 is called.
Get this: Only five condors have ever been recorded. The most recent was in December 2020 when a Bay Area golfer crushed his drive 500-plus yards, getting help from a downhill fairway and fortuitous bounces off of the winding cart path at Lake Chabot Golf Course in Oakland, California. Kevin Pon used his wedge to sink the ball in from 120 yards out, pulling off a shot that’s far rarer than the rare albatross (a.k.a. double eagle).
