Probability aside, what's Daniels's best advice for acing a shot? "Aim for the hole."

The United States Golf Register states the odds of hitting a hole-in-one in any given swing as one in 33,000. With those odds, you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning in your lifetime (one in 10,000 odds) than acing any giv- en hole in golf. By the looks of Daniels's golf score card, one should steer clear of him during a lightning storm.
