Emiliano Grillo made a hole-in-one on the par-3 13th today during his first round at the Open. It's the first hole-in-one we've seen at an Open Championship since 2016, when Louis Oosthuizen made an ace on the 14th at Royal Troon.

The par-3 13th at Royal Portrush is playing around 200 yards, with the pin position in an excellent position to use the slope on the left side of the green.

Grillo used the slop to his full advantage, landing it on the left allowing the ball to roll around 25ft, giving the crowd plenty of time to watch the ball turn towards the hole and once it dropped they gave Grillo the reaction he deserved.

The ace put Grillo back to level par for the day, but two more bogey's on the home stretch left the Argentinian with a two-over-par score of 73. Check out his epic hole-in-one below.
