Idaho woman defies odds, makes second albatross of her life
On the long bucket list of golf accomplishments, the albatross (double eagle) ranks right at the top of moments that most often go unaccomplished. The odds of hitting an albatross are estimated to be about 1-million-to-1 (the odds of an ace are about 13,000-to-1).
The odds of hitting two albatross -- albatri? -- in your lifetime? Astronomical.
According to a report from the Idaho Press-Tribune, Peggy Lynn Hicks beat those odds on the par-5 fourth hole of the Purple Sage Golf Course while playing in the Caldwell High School class of 1977 golf scramble.
