Condor Vulture Eagle Hummingbird 1 Answer Voted Oldest Recent Random Best Answer Goto 2021-02-02T04:04:44+00:00Added an answer on February 2, 2021 at 4:04 am The correct answer is: Condor. Ever wonder why so many golf shots are named after birds? Scholars believe it has something to do with the word “bird”being synonymous with “cool”when golf first emerged. While you’ve probably heard of a birdie (one under par) or an eagle (two under par), or even the rare albatross (three under par), there’s one shot that’s so rare, you’ve probably never seen it. Getting a hole-in-one on a par 5 hole (or four under par) has the special name of condor; fittingly named after the biggest bird of prey. Of course, technically all shots sunk in one are just holes-in-one, but netting a condor would put you in an elite league. As of 2020, there have been just five recorded, period. 14 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
