One hop and in! World number 44 nails six-iron for memorable Bethpage ace
Lucas Bjerregaard enjoyed this moment at the 17th.

DENMARK’S LUCAS BJERREGAARD aced the 206-yard par-three 17th hole at Bethpage Black on Sunday in the final round of the 101st PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old Dane, playing in his first PGA, lofted a six-iron shot that bounced once on the green and then dropped into the cup for a hole-in-one.

The shot left the world number 44 at two-over par. He closed with a bogey at 18 for a three-over 73 and a three-over total of 283, tied for 19th when he walked off the course.

It’s the fifth Major start for Bjerregaard, who missed the cut in the 2011 Open and 2015 US Open, shared 40th in the 2014 US Open and shared 21st in last month’s Masters.
