What’s the most albatrosses made in a PGA Tour event?

The albatross is a rare thing, with just 110 made on the PGA Tour since the Tour began keeping track of the statistic in 1983.

At the 2015 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Daniel Berger became the first player to make an albatross in the event's history with a 2 on the par-5 sixth in Round 3. A day later, Zach Johnson made an albatross of his own on the par-5 16th hole.

Those two albatrosses in the same event tie the PGA Tour record for the most in a single tournament with six other events:

2007 The Players Championship

  • Hunter Mahan, Round 2, No. 11 (first in tournament history)
  • Peter Lonard, Round 3, No. 2

2005 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open (erstwhile Michelin Championship in Las Vegas)

  • Marco Dawson, Round 3, TPC Summerlin, No. 9
  • Bill Glasson, Round 4, TPC Summerlin, No. 16

2005 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic

  • Tim Petrovic, Round 1 (of 5), Palmer Private at PGA West, No. 11
  • Tag Ridings, Round 3, Tamarisk, No. 12

2001 Open Championship (Royal Lytham and St. Annes)

  • Jeff Maggert, Round 1, No. 6
  • Greg Owen, Round 3, No. 11

1990 International (Castle Pines G.C., Castle Rock, Colo.)

  • Steve Pate, No. 8, Round 4
  • Jim Gallagher, No. 17, Round 4

1988 Provident Classic (Valleybrook C.C., Chattanooga, Tenn.)

  • Jim Booros, Round 2, No. 17
  • Ron Streck
