VIDEO: Ryan Moore’s near par-4 ace on No. 10 at the Northern Trust Open

Ryan Moore almost became the second man in PGA Tour history to record an ace on a par 4.

Playing the 10th at Riviera Country Club in Saturday's third round of the Northern Trust Open, Moore's tee shot to the famously short, 286-yard hole lipped out for an ace -- before trickling some 30 yards away from the hole, off the green into a precarious position.

From there, Moore managed to make bogey, failing to get up to the green with his second from a tightly-mowed lie, then two-putting once he found the green.

Golf is cruel.

Andrew Magee remains the only man to ever record a par-4 hole-in-one in PGA Tour history, doing so with a little bit of ricochet help at the 17th hole at TPC Scottsdale during the 2001 Waste Management Phoenix Open.
