What Is A Hole Out In Golf?

A hole out is basically any golfing shot that finishes with the ball ending up in the cup, (or resting against the flag with any part of the ball below the surface of the putting green.) It’s the last shot that a golfer plays on any given hole. More often than not, a golfer holes out by tapping in a short putt but just Occasionally they might achieve a hole out from a longer range – A long putt, a pitch or chip, a full shot, maybe even a drive.

If a player has a hole out from the tee is a par-3 that would be a hole-in-one or an ace. It would also be an eagle. If they managed to hole out from the tee on a par-4, that would be a hole-in-one, an ace and an albatross (or double eagle).
