European Tour sets new record for most aces made in a season


SHARE THIS STORY

Aces have been contagious on the European Tour in 2015. There were another two recorded on Saturday in the third round of the KLM Open, breaking, then re-breaking the record for the most holes-in-one recorded in a single European Tour season.

Magnus Carlsson made the record-breaking 40th ace of the year on the 227-yard par-3 eighth hole at Kennemer Golf and Country Club in the Netherlands, surpassing the 39 carded in 2006. An hour later, Australian Wade Ormsby made the 41st hole-in-one on the campaign with a 7-iron from 169 yards at the 11th hole.

The new record falls short of the PGA Tour's mark of 44 in the 1994 season. So far in 2014-15, there have been 41 aces on the PGA Tour.
