VIDEO: Francesco Molinari aces par-3 16th at Phoenix Open


The tee had been moved up at the par-3 16th at TPC Scottsdale for the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Francesco Molinari took full advantage of the 135-yard hole, making the eighth ace at the hole since 1990.

The crowd went absolutely nuts for the hole-in-one, throwing hundreds of aluminum beer bottles onto the hole and in the air in celebration.

The ace moved Molinari to 4 under on the round and on the edge of contention.
