FIVE OF THE BEST... HOLES-IN-ONE

Golf World (UK) - - PGA TOUR AT 50 -

Tiger Woods

16th hole, 152 yards, TPC Scotts­dale, 1997

Though he didn’t win this Phoenix Open, Woods was re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing its most en­dur­ing im­age – a typ­i­cally ag­gres­sive fist pump and fans’ beer cups rain­ing down on the tee around him after he holed his 9-iron in the third round of the 1997 event.

An­drew Magee

17th hole, 332 yards, TPC Scotts­dale, 2001

In the first round of the Phoenix Open, Magee’s tee shot with a driver bounced off Tom Byrum’s put­ter be­fore find­ing the cup, an ace deemed en­tirely le­gal.

Brian Har­man

14th hole, 218 yards, Plain­field CC, 2015

The left-han­der’s 4-hy­brid landed a few feet short of the flag and trick­led into the hole dur­ing the fi­nal round of the 2015 Bar­clays. A re­mark­able shot was made truly ex­tra­or­di­nary by virtue of it be­ing Har­man’s sec­ond ace of the round.

Leif Ol­son

15th hole, 132 yards, Glen Abbey GC, 2009

On 15 in the Cana­dian Open, Ol­son’s tee shot landed 20ft be­hind the hole, span back­wards, ric­o­cheted off his play­ing part­ner’s ball, turned sharp right and ran 5ft into the hole. Oh so Heath Robin­son.

Rich Beem

14th hole, 177 yards, Riviera CC, 2007

We in­clude Beem’s ace from the 2007 Nis­san Open not to so much for a tee shot that bounced once and dropped straight into the hole, but for the re­ac­tion as Beem climbed atop the red Nis­san sports car he’d just won and laid belly-down on the roof.
