Aaron Baddeley made a hole-in-one on the par-4 17th on Thursday at the Valero Texas Open -- except it was with his second ball.
The Aussie's initial tee shot to the 336-yard hole landed well left of the green and into an unplayable lie. Baddeley decided to re-tee his ball.
With his second tee shot, Baddeley holed out the shot for one hell of a birdie. That second-chance ace moved Baddeley to 4 under par on a difficult scoring day at TPC San Antonio. He finished with on 4 under with a 68 that left him a shot behind Charley Hoffman after the first round.
"I hit the second one, man, why didn't I do that the first time? And it rolls up and goes in," said Baddeley after the round.
We don't have a good name for the shot, but the term "hole-in-three" was used to describe the second-ball ace Fred Couples made for par at the 1999 Players. If we could submit a term, we'd call it a "bald eagle" -- something that was once almost extinct but absolutely still exists.
However, Andrew Magee remains the only player to ever record a par-4 ace in PGA Tour history, doing so on the par-4 17th at TPC Scottsdale in the 2001 Waste Management Phoenix Open.
