There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

18 on Felt by Martin Sjöberg


Sweden 07 Oct 2010 at 21:16 | Published by: Hans | Views: 7261 | News search

18 on Felt by Martin Sjöberg Today the perfect round of 18 was played by Jönköpings Martin Sjöberg at the indoor Felt course in Vinslöv, south Sweden. It was on a small local competition and can therefore not be counted as any official record. Nevertheless it’s an amazing and really rare achievement.

When Martin has aced the first 13-14 lanes on the second round all other play in the hall practically stopped and all competitors was following the last lanes for Martin. It became more and more silence in the hall the closer Martin came to the end. Despite this nervous situation Martin succeeded in also acing the last four lanes and the big cheer broke loose.

Some years ago this was done for the first time by Sjövikens Magnus Andersson in another indoor felt course in Älmhult, Sweden.

So now the club for 18 on Felt has two members. Martin has now also joined another exclusive club for those that have achieved 18 on two different course types. Martin has done this on eternit and felt. There are two other member of this club. The above mentioned Magnus Andersson has also done it on felt and eternit and of course Skoghalls Stefan Björk that has scored 18 on both eternit and beton.

Congratulations! Well played!

PS. I just have to comment on JJM's proposed facts. The binomial distribution is based on the assumption that the performance on each lane is an independent event. Anyone who has been +0 after 17 lanes can agree that it is more probable that it is not.
PPS. If a probability for an event to occur is 1/n, repeating the test for n times won't guarantee for the event to happen.

Some statistical facts:

If each of 18 lanes gives a hole-in-one with 50% probability, the statistical probability for scoring an 18-round is 0.50^18 = 1 : 262144, so top players must play 262144 rounds before we see one 18-round scored somewhere.

If each of 18 lanes gives a hole-in-one with 75% probability, the statistical probability for scoring an 18-round is 0.75^18 = 1 : 177, so top players must play 177 rounds before we see one 18-round scored somewhere.

If each of 18 lanes gives a hole-in-one with 25% probability, the statistical probability for scoring an 18-round is 0.25^18 = 1 : 68719476736, so top players must play 68719476736 rounds before we see one 18-round scored somewhere.
