PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- It seems Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald did something that is not often accomplished out on the golf course.
He got a hole-in-one Friday, while hosting President Barack Obama at the Seminole Golf Club in Florida, according to the Golf Channel.
According to tweets made by Golf Channel analyst Tim Rosaforte on his verified Twitter page Friday, Fitzgerald was hosting President Obama at the gold course. It was the former president's first time playing golf at the facility, located north of West Palm Beach. Fitzgerald reportedly made the hole-in-one at around 1:30 p.m. Friday, and the golf club's President, Jim Dunne, even waived a no cellphone rule on the course so that Fitzgerald could deliver the message.
Barack Obama played prestigious Seminole GC for the first time Friday morning, hosted by All Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in a foursome that included club president Jimmy Dunne and Glenn Hutchins, part owner in the Celtics and board member of Obama Foundation.— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
The elation coming from All Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald on the 13th hole at Seminole GC at 1:30 this afternoon was unreal. But it was very real. So real that club president Jimmy Dunne waved the no cell phone rule on the course so Fitzgerald could deliver the message.— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
"I'm playing with the President of the United States and I just made a hole in one!" shouted the host to Barack Obama's first go around The 'Nole. "This is unbelievable!"— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
Dunne, who advocated the Fitzgerald membership, provided the details. Obama had just hit his approach shot 20 feet from the hole. Fitzgerald stepped up with an 8-iron and jarred it."— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
The stock shot is 165 yards from the blue tees to an elevated green that almost always plays into an Easterly breeze. It stands as one of the most beautiful holes on the property, with a green up against the sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean.— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
It's considered one of the hardest 18th handicap holes you could find in golf. Fitzgerald, playing to a 10.7-handicap, hit 8-iron from 162 yards. Eye witnesses described the ball rolling in like a putt. Among the high fives was the one coming from the 44th President of the U.S.— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforteGC) January 18, 2019
According to Rosaforte, the area where the hole-in-one happened is considered to be one of the hardest 18th handicap holes players can find in golf, and after the feat was accomplished, a number of people gave high-fives to Fitzgerald, including President Obama himself.
According to tweets made by the Arizona Cardinals on its verified Twitter page, Friday is also the day when the NFL team had its NFC Championship win.
As for hole-in-ones, they are pretty rare by any means. A Golf Digest article from 2013 states the odds of a pro-golfer hitting a hole-in-one is 2,500 to one, and for amateur golfers, the odd increase to 12,500 to 1.
