Ryan fox

On the first day of the PGA Tour’s ‘5th Major’ Players Championship (total prize money of $25 million), a hole-in-one was made at the ‘signature hole’, the 17th hole (par 3). .

Ryan Fox (New Zealand) recorded a hole-in-one in the 17th hole in the first round of the tournament held at TPC Sawgrass (par 72, 7,275 yards) in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, USA on the 15th (Korean time).

The tee shot that Fox hit flew over the pond, landed at the back of the green, then rotated in reverse and rolled into the hole.

It was the first hole-in-one on the 17th hole in this year’s tournament and the 14th in total. 카지노사이트

Fox, who also hit an eagle on the previous 16th hole (par 5), became the first player to make back-to-back eagles in this tournament since 1983, when related records were compiled.

Fox finished the first round with 3 under par 69, with 2 eagles, 2 birdies, and 3 bogeys.

The 17th hole, with the green surrounded by a pond, is a short hole of 137 yards, but the psychological difficulty is high because even if the shot is slightly off, the ball will fall into the water.

Until 2013, the playoffs of this tournament were held in sudden death at the 17th hole, which is where many dramas took place.

In 1987, Jeff Slumman missed a 2m birdie putt and ended up losing in overtime, while in 2011, Choi Kyung-ju won thanks to opponent David Toms’ three-putt bogey in overtime. 토토사이트 순위
