A hole in one is a rare and impressive feat in golf. It means hitting the ball directly from the tee into the hole with a single stroke. According to the PGA Tour Media Guide, here are some of the best hole in one records:

– The most holes in one by a player since 1983 is 10, shared by Robert Allenby and Hal Sutton.
– The season with the most holes in one since 1971 is 1994, with 44.
– The highest single-hole score in PGA Tour history is 18, made by John Daly at the 1998 Bay Hill Invitational on the par-5 sixth hole.
– The lowest single-round score in PGA Tour history is 58, made by Jim Furyk at the 2016 Travelers Championship on the par-70 TPC River Highlands course.
