You'd think it's impossible to make a hole-in-one on a par 5 in golf.
However, there have been several recorded holes-in-one on par 5s, which most folks seem to want to call a "condor."
According to About.com, more often than not, they've come on holes where there is a severe dogleg, allowing a player to blast over the curve of the hole directly to the hole location.
Here are a few examples of par-5 aces (which could be called "condors"):
- Larry Bruce, 480-yard, dogleg-right fifth hole at Hope Country Club in Hope, Ark., in 1962
- Dick Hogan, 456-yard No. 8 at Piedmont Crescent Golf Course in Burlington, N.C. in 1973
- Shaun Lynch, 496-yard No. 17 at Teign Valley Golf Club in Christow, England, in 1995
- Mike Crean, 517-yard, straight-on No. 9 at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver, Colo., in 2002
- Jack Bartlett, 513-yard 17th at Royal Wentworth Falls Country Club, New South Wales, Australia, in 2007
