Taekwondo young man’ Viktor Hovland (Norway), who is participating in the Leader Cup, a European-American golf competition, enjoyed the rare fortune of a hole-in-one on a par 4 hole during a practice round.
Hovlan, who was playing a practice round at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club near Rome, Italy on the 28th local time, hit a tee shot with a fairway wood into the hole on the 5th hole (par 4).
The ball fell on the green in front of the hole, rolled a little, and was sucked into the hole.
Hundreds of spectators watched this scene and cheered.
Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Matt Fitzpatrick (England), and Ludwig Arbery (Sweden), who were playing the practice round together, hugged Hovland and were happy.
A hole-in-one on a par 4 hole is a record that has only been achieved once on the PGA Tour.
The only par 4 hole hole-in-one was made by Andrew Magee (USA) at the Phoenix Open in 2001.
Hovland, who had his best season this year by winning the Tour Championship in the final round of the PGA Tour Playoffs, trained Taekwondo when he was young.
He is considered a key member of the European team in this Ryder Cup along with Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and John Lam (Spain).
Hovland will pair up with Arbery to face Max Homa and Brian Harman in the foursomes match on the first day of the Ryder Cup, 토토사이트 which begins on the afternoon of the 29th.
