Fan favourite golfer Mike Visacki makes 20TH HOLE-IN-ONE!

Many of you will remember Mike Visacki and his journey to the PGA Tour in 2021. He made two appearances on the circuit and made friends with one of the best players on the planet.

The 28-year-old has resurfaced with some activity on social media. On Thursday, he excitedly told his fans that he'd just made his 20th hole-in-one. Yes, 20 hole-in-ones. 

There are golfers who will play their whole lives and not make a hole-in-one, but Visacki is far from this. We have yet another reason to love the big man born in Sarasota, Florida.

Earlier this month, Visacki won the Long Beach Open at El Dorado Park and Skylinks Golf Courses with four superb rounds in the 60s, having struggled in Monday qualifiers throughout this season.

Visacki, who has made seven appearances on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2022 and made just one cut, first surfaced in May 2021 when he wept while calling his dad to tell him he qualified to play in the Valspar Championship.

He may have missed the cut, but he also earned an invitation to the Charles Schwab Challenge as well. This was his last appearance on the PGA Tour as he still toils on development tours. 

He built an unexpected but refreshing relationship with two-time US PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas, who gave financial help to Visacki to continue his quest for the Tour.

"I know Q-school is expensive, I know playing in these events are expensive and if there's any little way I can help out then I want to. I want to be helpful with more than just money, I told him 'dude, anytime'," said Thomas said back in June 2021.

"He lives in Florida and we're going to play some golf together but I just said 'hey dude, if you ever want advice or if you ever want to pick my brain or if you just want to talk then I'm here for you'."

We all certainly hope to see Visacki making more aces in the future, but not at the Long Beach Open, but on golf's premier circuit.
