The extreme 19th: a million dollars for a hole-in-one

The Extreme 19th hole at the Legend Golf and Safari Resort in South Africa is likely the hardest hole in the world.

The hole is a 630-yard par 3. To get to the tee, golfers must take a helicopter ride up over 1,400 feet. On its descent, the ball hangs in the air for almost 26 seconds. The owners of the course are confident enough in the difficulty of the hole to offer $1 million to the first person who can hit a hole-in-one. As of the middle of 2011, only two players had ever managed to even score a birdie.

Don’t believe us?, watch it right here.

I’d say I could hit a thousand balls and still miss the green.
