Jordan Spieth told the ball to “be enough,” and this time, it was exactly enough.
"Be enough." Exactly enough. A hole-in-one for Jordan Spieth. http://t.co/8u47r7Gd2k

Spieth made a hole-in-one at the par-3 second hole in the opening round of the BMW Championship at Conway Farms G.C., just north of Chicago. The world No. 2’s tee shot to the 196-yard hole looked good in the air, but Spieth wasn’t sure if it would have enough to carry the left greenside bunker, pleading with it mid-air.
Turns out, Spieth had nothing to worry about as the ball landed on the green and started moving slight to the right as it rolled into the hole for Spieth’s second PGA Tour ace. Spieth also scored a hole-in-one during the 2013 Puerto Rico Open.
The score moved Spieth from even par to 2 under on the round. A hole later, Spieth then chipped in for birdie just short of the green to get to 3 under.
The sad part? Playing the first three holes of his Thursday back nine in 3 under weren’t good enough to keep pace with playing competitor Jason Day, who went eagle-birdie-birdie.
