Golfer makes final-round hole-in-one at PGA Championship

Byeong Hun An recorded the first hole-in-one at the 2020 PGA Championship on Sunday.

An got his first-ever ace on the 11th hole during the final round at TPC Harding Park. The hole was playing 189 yards and An’s ball bounced four times on the green before gently rolling into the cup.

With no fans on site, An – as well as the rest of us, for that matter – missed out on what would have been a huge roar from the crowd. But there was one exulted call from someone on the course; watch the video below for the reaction.

An needed a birdie on 18 to tie the PGA Championship mark of 63 but he parred and walked off the course with a 64.

It’s the 32nd ace on the PGA Tour this season and the first since Bronson Burgoon had a hole-in-one at the Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

An’s ace is the 28th at the PGA Championship since 1983. Lucas Bjerregaard had one during the 2019 PGA Championship.

The National Hole-in-One Registry says that the odds of a PGA Tour pro getting a hole-in-one is 3,000-to-1.
