WATCH: Jaco Van Zyl makes second hole-in-one of Olympic golf tournament



Jaco Van Zyl made he second hole-in-one in known Olympic golf history on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro.

Playing the eighth hole on the Olympic Golf Course, the South African's tee shot landed just short of the hole on the 173-yard par 3, rolling smoothly into the hole for an ace.

Van Zyl dropped his club in celebration on the tee box.



This is the potential payoff for a big week for Van Zyl, who skipped both the Open Championship and PGA Championship in a three-week stretch to prepare for this week in Brazil.
