Haotong Li makes 3 eagles on par 4s in European Tour round

Weeks after Chez Reavie became the first player in recorded PGA Tour history to make three par-4 eagles in the same round, Haotong Li completed the same feat on the European Tour.

Competing in the controversial inaugural Saudi International in Saudi Arabia, Li made three par-4 eagles in the third round of the tournament. Li had hole out from off the green for eagle on the first and 10th holes, and then the Chinese-born player arrived at the drivable par-4 17th.



Li found the green with his tee shot, with his ball landing 6 feet away from the hole. He converted the putt for eagle 2, giving him a third par-4 eagle on the round.

The feat comes on the heels of Chez Reavie becoming the first known PGA Tour player to have three par-4 eagles in a round. In Reavie's second round at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, Reavie had hole-outs of 101 yards, 135 yards and 149 yards for his three eagles.

But Li wasn't done there. He made an eagle 3 on the par-5 18th hole to tie the record for most eagles in a single round on the European Tour or PGA Tour at four, whether they come on par 3s, par 4s or par 5s. The feat has now been accomplished three times on the European Tour and twice on the PGA Tour.
