Being insurance professionals we thought we would share some trivia that interested us:

The chance of an average golfer making a hole in one has been calculated with odds of approximately 12,500 to 1.  Professional golfer have a little better chance at 2,500 to 1.  (Insurance actuaries)

Whether you like golf or not it is a great workout.  Assuming the golfer walks rather than rides, a typical golfer weighing about 190 pounds will burn 431 calories an hour in addition to building greater muscle mass. (Health and fitness website ShapeFit.com)
