Alastair Forsyth makes Spanish Open ace after McGregor’s death

Alastair Forsyth is still mourning the sudden passing of his caddie, 52-year-old Iain McGregor, after he suffered an on-course heart attack last Sunday during the final round of the Madeira Islands Open. 

Forsyth played on this week at the Spanish Open with little expectations, opening with 5-over 77 that left him unlikely to make the cut.

However, in the second round, Forsyth made a hole-in-one at the par-3 fifth at PGA Catalunya Resort from 200 yards with a 4-iron, according to the European Tour. Followers on Twitter couldn't help but wonder if it was a mystic affirmation from Forsyth's fallen friend and caddie.

The ace left Forsyth with an outside chance at making the weekend cut.
