Tom Holland devastated after narrowly missing a hole-in-one

Tom Holland devastated after narrowly missing a hole-in-one

Tom Holland was assigned a difficult task.

Him and his two younger brothers, Harry and Sam, tried to hit a hole-in-one on a golf course.

While that is pretty difficult at the best of times, the Holland trio was given 500 balls to make the dream come true.

They arrived onto the Edinburgh Course at Wentworth Golf Club in London hoping to have at least one of their attempts find the hole.


The team was told they had to tee off from the 132-yard par three second hole of the course.

DP World Tour has released a video showing them get agonisingly close several times.

On shot number 380, the Spider-Man star whacked the ball almost directly straight.


He watched it sail into the air for a seemingly endless amount of time before it landed a few metres from the hole.

It kicked back and rolled so close to the hole that it hurts to watch.

Tom thought he had finally done it before realising it was another miss and collapsed onto the ground.

Harry came even closer than his famous brother as his ball rolled back and actually touched the pin before diverting away from the hole.


Tom was able to hit the 500th ball and he admitted he was so tired at this stage after hitting countless balls all day.

Sadly, it wasn't meant to be for Tom or his brothers and then left feeling a little dejected.

But, they hugged it out and Tom said: "That was so tough."

In total, 241 shots of theirs made it onto the green. There were 56 shots that came within 10 feet of the hole and a further 24 that came within five feet.


There were also 31 shanks in the 500 balls and the boys ended up with an accuracy of 29.55 feet from the hole.

Tom says his dad taught him how to play golf as he was growing up and it's a fond hobby when he's not on a movie set.

GQ Style journalist Zach Baron was taken for a round with the actor and he was surprised by Holland's skill.

"He drives the ball about 300," he said.


"His go-to shot is a high draw. His swing is compact and athletic and startlingly loud when he makes contact with the ball."
