At the Rocket Mortgage Classic on Thursday, Mark Hubbard dropped his club in disgust after hitting his tee shot at the par-3 11th, only to get a hole-in-one.
“I mean, honestly, it was pretty embarrassing,” the American told the PGA Tour website after signing for a 4-under 68, four shots behind early leaders Tony Finau and Taylor Pendrith.
“Didn’t quite know where the ball was going today. Taking a week off and whatever I just didn’t feel as spot on and I think I let go of the club on about three of the last four shots as well and they all ended up OK. I just felt really stuck and I thought it was going to be way right off the green.
“I looked up and it was a perfect 1-yard draw. It landed and trickled in like a putt. Yeah, I think that’s probably going to end up being one of my favorite hole-in-ones I ever had just because of the situation.”
