What are the odds?

Our friend Spouse A made a hole in one last week. I, of course, had to look up what are the odds of making a hole in one. I mean I watch Numbers, I know there is a formula for everything, so there must a formula for this right?

Well, yes there is. Basically, the odds are 12,500 to 1 for an amateur golfer.

So does this mean that I'd have to play golf 12,500 times before I got a hole in one or I'd have to play with 12,499 other individuals and then I might have a chance?

Spouse A, I don't care what the odds are - you are one in a million.

Good swing.
