Chesson Hadley ecstatically celebrates first hole-in-one at Wyndham Championship

There were epic scenes at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday as Chesson Hadley made his first-ever hole-in-one on the PGA Tour.

Hadley was enjoying a superb first nine holes in the final round of the Wyndham Championship, which he began on the back nine, making four birdies in his first six holes.

The 34-year-old arrived at the 16th hole and sent his shot sailing towards the green, which was 160 yards away. His ball landed over the top of the pin and it rolled back into the hole.

Hadley was absolutely ecstatic and celebrated passionately on the tee box, high-fiving and embracing many different people in his group.

Not only did the man from North Carolina make his first hole-in-one on the PGA Tour, but he also played his first nine holes in 29 shots, which is his career-best score over that many holes.

The World No. 274 did not look back from this point at Sedgefield Country Club. He made three more birdies to complete a scintillating score of 8-under-par on Sunday.

Hadley finished on 12-under-par for the tournament and he will face a nervous wait as to whether he will qualify for the 125-man field in the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs at the Northern Trust Open.

Hadley is sat right on the bubble of qualification and he is one of many players who are hoping to secure their place in the FedEx Cup playoffs. If he finishes in 16th place or better, he will have a chance of playing next week.
