During the second round at the AT&T Byron Nelson, Gary Woodland did the unthinkable and hit a hole-in-one on a par 4. Yup! Can you believe it?
However, this “par-4” was only 100 yards long. Wait wha?! Who in the world would do this to TPC Four Seasons?!?!
Well, you see, during a rain delay, the fairway got a bit screwed up and damaged. This pretty much led to the course crew to move the tee box up which led to the hole playing only 100 yards long.
Yet, the PGA Tour still let it remain a par-4 which led to the “Short Putt Ninja” Gary Woodland to become only the second player ever to ace a par-4.
Eventually, the PGA Tour thought “OK, this isn’t really working. Too many players have a chance to make history so let’s go ahead and change this to a par-3!”.
Smart move PGA Tour! Smart move!

Francesco Mollinari of the popular Mollinari brothers on Tour (Eduardo is the other Mollinari) made history on Saturday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Francesco became only the ninth PGA Tour player in history to ace the world famous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale.
Francesco has been known as a very accurate iron player. Well, he definitely proved it once again, hitting a gorgeous shot that had a little spin and rolled into the cup.
Check out this amazing shot!
Oh, and the reaction from the fans? Legendary.
This is why the Waste Management Phoenix Open is one of the best golf tournaments on Tour. The fans are really into it, fans of all ages and the college students love it.
It brings a fun factor to golf that helps make it appealing to the masses. The 16th hole also known as “The Colosseum” is one of the best stadiums in sports and after Francesco’s ace, it’s reminding the sports world that they’re one of the loudest crowds around.
The ground shook a little bit after that ace! It’s also fair to say that “Super Mollinari” ate his share of mushrooms before that tee shot!
So, if someone starts nagging about how “boring” golf is, you tell them, “Listen homie, watch the Waste Management Phoenix Open, watch hole 16, and then come back and tell me how “boring” golf is!”.
