How long have you playing golf? Have you made a hole-in-one? If so, how long were you playing before that ace came?

I'll bet you it didn't come as quickly as this woman's from England.

Golf Digest stumbled upon a video posted to YouTube on Nov. 16, showing a lady named Becky Marsh -- during her "first ever golf lesson," the video claims -- making a hole-in-one on a 60-yard, par-3 at the Academy Course at Kendleshire Golf Club in Bristol, England.

The club of choice? A 7-iron. And, as if you weren't already jealous enough that a lady playing for the first time did something you probably never have that carries 12,500-to-1 odds, it was even caught on video:

Are you buying what this video is selling? As Golf Digest notes, it's posted by a a teaching pro named Emma Brown, who actually shot the video. That would seem legit? Plus, Marsh's swing certainly looks like that of a beginner...

... Who has nothing left to experience in golf but disappointment, just like the rest of us!

Great video, great shot and great reaction. If that doesn't make Marsh a golfer for life, I don't know what will.
