VIDEO: Zach Johnson makes albatross on No. 16 at Arnold Palmer


There hadn't been an albatross in the Arnold Palmer Invitational until Saturday. On Sunday, there was a second.

Zach Johnson holed out a 5-iron from 207 yards at the par-5 16th hole for an albatross 2 and to improve to 8 under par on the final round. It's the round of the day at Bay Hill.

On Saturday, Daniel Berger made an albatross at the par-5 sixth hole for the first albatross in the history of the tournament, dating back to when the PGA Tour began keeping such statistics in 1983.

In a typical PGA Tour season, there are three or four albatrosses. We have two this week.
