Mark Hubbard, “worst” hole-in-one in history

During the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, American Mark Hubbard hit a very bad shot off the par 3 of 11 and never thought he would see his ball disappear into the hole located more than 190 meters away. Even the worst ironing of his day can be extremely profitable.

Mark Hubbard, hole-in-one

This is often the case with amateurs but rarer with professionals. This Thursday in Detroit, in the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the American Mark Hubbard had the immense pleasure of tasting this unique flavor.

After his strike, the 33-year-old, still looking for a first success on the PGA Tour, never imagined for a moment that the outcome would be so happy. He lets go of his club in spite but follows the ball with his eyes until he sees it rush into the hole. Something to feel a little embarrassed about.

Detroit is a city in the United States of America, the capital of Wayne County, the main center of the State of Michigan.

Founded in 1701 by French fur hunters, it is now best known as the capital of the US auto industry. In the Detroit flag appear the lilies of France and the lions of England, symbolizing the role played by the two powers in the history of the city located on the border between French Canada and the territories colonized by the British.

Located along the Detroit River, opposite the Canadian city of Windsor, it is located in the region of the great American lakes, in the center of a vast industrial area.

Detroit is the 18th largest city in the United States with a population of 673 104 inhabitants (4.3 million in the metropolitan area) according to data from the U.S. 2012 Census Bureau: This is less than half of the population the city had at its peak in the 1950s. The city administration suffered the biggest bankruptcy in the history of US cities in 2013, exiting the receivership in December 2014. The city center is attempting a revival: despite the cuts in public and financial services, it has built up its Compuware headquarters, three casinos were opened, the Renaissance Center complex, the world headquarters of General Motors, was renovated and a new sports arena was opened where the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons play; starting from the 21st century, citizens began to take possession of the numerous vacant lots of land, owned by the municipality, to use them for agricultural and social purposes as a community garden.

The city is an important place of music production, mainly thanks to the “Motown” label.
