Thanks to a little luck and a long roll, Shawn Stefani was able to capture the only hole-in-one in the five U.S. Opens that have been played at Merion Golf Club. The 31-year-old Texas native made golfing history when his tee shot rolled right out of the rough and into the cup for an unlikely ace on the 17th hole.
As you can see, Stefani’s tee shot completely missed the green.
But then the ball rolled an estimated 50 feet before settling right into the cup.
Which led to this celebration between Stefani and his caddie.
This is only the second time Stefani has made a hole-in-one. The first he made was at age 13 at a country club where he grew up. So needless to say, his celebration was justified.
