It is the door of fortune.”
This is the story of Hayden Berkeley (USA). On the 10th (Korean time), the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour ‘5th Major’ The Players Championship (total prize money of $25 million) held at Sawgrass TPC (par 72, 7256 yards) in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, USA 1 He made a hole-in-one in the 17th hole (par 3) of the round. The ball hit with a pitching wedge from a distance of 125 yards fell to the green, rolled down the slope, and disappeared alone. Buckley cheered as he threw off his hat.
It is the 40th hole in this tournament and the 35th hole-in-one after moving to Sawgrass TPC. The hole-in-one on the 17th hole is the 11th all-time since Shane Lowry (Ireland) recorded it in the third round last year. Berkeley tasted the joy of a personal second hole-in-one following the 17th hole in the first round of the 2021 Shriners Children’s Open. 카지노사이트
Buckley tied a hole-in-one, 4 birdies, 3 bogeys, and 2 double bogeys to hit a 1-over-par 73. In the first 11 holes, he reduced 5 strokes, including hole-in-one, while cruising and forgot 6 strokes in the remaining 7 holes. Berkeley is in its second year since debuting on the regular tour last season. There is no championship yet and the world ranking is 107th. This season, he entered the “Top 5” twice, including a tie for 5th at the Jojo Championship and 2nd at the Sony Open. It is ranked 33rd in prize money ($1,629,364) and 27th in FedEx Cup points (529 points).
Hole 17 at Sawgrass TPC is a tour player’s nightmare. Although the battlefield is short, it is difficult to attack the hole due to the wind that changes direction and strength every moment on the island green. PGA Tour players are also notorious for the ‘Hall of Death’, where more than 50 balls are flooded each year. Until last year, 868 golf balls were buried. In 2007, as many as 93 golf balls fell into the water. Bob Tway (USA) hit a 9 over par 12 in the 3rd round in 2005 with his ball falling into the water 4 times. He is the main character of ‘The Greatest Disaster’.
