How to use hole in a sentence?

  1. Casino:

    Nicky A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes. But you gotta do it right. I mean, you gotta have the hole already dug before you show up with a package in the trunk. Otherwise, you're talking about a half-hour to forty-five minutes worth of digging. And who knows who's gonna come along in that time Pretty soon, you gotta dig a few more holes. You could be there all f***in' night.

  2. Kedar Joshi:

    God is a philosophical black hole - the point where reason breaks down.

  3. Colin Montgomerie:

    The best shot I hit, probably one of the best shots of my life, was the fourth out of the bunker, away from the hole, no one in the field would have got the first ball out of there, it was buried in the face of the bunker. The second one fell into a footprint and my footprint is deeper than most... and I hit a great shot to get it out.

  4. Pamela Robey:

    My fellows, Songtao Shi and Stan Gronthos, did the work in my lab, songtao Shi is a dentist, and basically Songtao Shi observed that, when you get a cavity, you get what's called' reparative dentin.' In other words, the tooth is trying to protect itself from that cavity, so it makes a little bit of dentin to kind of plug the hole, so to speak.

  5. Justin Rose:

    My short game has been really, really strong this week, i've made a lot of putts inside ten feet. I've managed my game really well. I've missed it in the wrong spots. I've always given Justin Rose an opportunity to salvage something out of every hole I've played. And I haven't compounded any mistakes so far.
