VIDEO: Amateur makes ace at par-3 16th during Phoenix Open pro-am



The pros get nervous playing the par-3 16th at TPC Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Hitting in front of pro-am crowds bigger than most PGA Tour tournament-day crowds, amateurs have to be absolutely petrified.

Not Dave Wood, though.

Wood made an ace at the 16th on Wednesday during the pro-am, drawing huge cheers from the mass of fans around the par 3. It's a 12,500-to-1 shot under normal circumstances. Given that only seven pros have aced this hole in tournament play since 1990, it's even more impressive.
