A week doesn’t go by on the PGA Tour, European Tour, or Korn Ferry Tour where we don’t witness a hole-in-one during an event. It’s gotten so commonplace that an ace during a pro event rarely even elicits any sort of response.

What about a hole-in-one on a par 4 though?

Phil teed off on the 353 yard par-4 14th and, as you can see from the video below, clanked his tee shot off the flagstick:

Phil tapped in for eagle on his way to a second round 72. He heads into the weekend at 2-under, 11 shots back of leader Justin Thomas.
