Players go hole-in-one crazy at Wentworth

Powered by National Club Golfer


There really is something about Wentworth that means the professionals just can’t get around it quick enough.

Sure the course isn’t for everyone, and five players at the BMW PGA Championship decided the best way to play the course was to hole out straight from the tee.

The record-breaking number of aces saw Craig Lee, Trevor Fisher Jnr and Miguel Angel Jimenez all hole out from the tee on the 2nd.

The 51-year-old Spaniard’s hole-in-one was his second in two weeks, his third of the season, and a European Tour record-setting tenth of his career. Fans have grown accustomed to the ‘Jimenez Jig’ that inevitably follows his success, and the charismatic Spaniard said: “You get the right distance, the right club, hit a good shot and that’s the ingredients you need to make a hole in one.

“My irons, they are like darts.”



Elsewhere, 20,956 spectators saw ‘Beefy’ Johnston’s ace net the 26-year-old a BMW M4 at the 10th, while Chris Wood later won a BMW i8 with his hole-in-one at the 14th.


The 6ft 6in Bristolian said he had joked with Jimenez the night before about his proficiency from the tee. He said: “Last night at the hotel I bumped into Miguel and said ‘Another hole-in-one, when is it my turn?’”


Tommy Fleetwood also got in on the act with the shot of the tournament, an albatross on the par 5 fourth hole. It was only the third albatross in the history of the PGA Championship and saw the Southport native complete a ‘perfect set’, shooting an albatross, eagle, birdie and par on the long holes.
