Through his first 25 holes of the 2015 Memorial Tournament, Jason Dufner made four eagles, including back-to-back eagles with a 3 on the par-5 15th, then a hole-in-one on the par-3 16th in Round 2 at Muirfield Village Golf Club. He was close to setting the PGA Tour record for the most eagles in a single, 72-hole stroke-play PGA Tour event.
The PGA Tour record for most eagles made in a 72-hole event is five, held by:
- Derek Lamely, 2011 CareerBuilder Challenge
- Keegan Bradley, 2018 RBC Canadian Open
- Brandt Snedeker, 2018 RBC Canadian Open
The PGA Tour mark of most eagles in a single round is four, which has been accomplished twice in PGA Tour history:
- Willie Wood, 1990 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, third round
- Scott McCarron, 1995 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, second round
The last player to make three eagles in a round and go on to win the event that week was Will MacKenzie at the 2006 Reno-Tahoe Open.
The last player to make a hole-in-one in a tournament and go on to win is Dustin Johnson, who made an ace on No. 8 at TPC Blue Monster en route to winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
