Ryan Fox became the latest golfer to ace the famed 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass overnight. In the process, though, he did something no one has ever done in the 50-year history of the Players Championship.

The four-time DP Tour winner spun a shot off the slope and into a front hole location during the opening round, capping what has to be one of the wildest four-hole stretches of all time. Playing the back nine at TPC Sawgrass first, Fox bogeyed 14 and 15 before making eagle on 16 and a hole-in-one on 17.

According to the PGA Tour, he’s the first golfer to make consecutive eagles on 16 and 17 at the Players. And he’s the 15th overall to ace the treacherous par 3. Anyway, have a look at one of the best highlights of the New Zealander’s career:


It’s certainly better than the time he spilled mustard on himself. In any event, well done, Ryan. And well done to any gambling experts who had a hole-in-one on 17 as one of their pre-tournament bets. That took only a few hours to cash.
