Joel Dahmen with OUTRAGEOUS finish on day three at Mayakoba

Joel Dahmen narrowly missed out on a rare albatross on the par-4 17th in the third round of the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. 

After just making a birdie-three at the tricky 16th and with the tee box up on the par-4 17th, Dahmen pulled out the driver and took dead aim at the flag. 

Dahmen's drive fired against the flagstick and the ball very nearly dropped into the cup for an albatross-one. 

Had the ball gone down for an albatross it would have been just the second in PGA Tour history. 


Andrew Magee's hole-in-one on the 17th at the 2001 Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale remains the lone ace on a par 4 in PGA Tour history.

It also had a friendly assist! 


Dahmen, who was playing alongside a red-hot Seamus Power who won his second career PGA Tour title in Bermuda last week, then drained a long putt for birdie the final hole to sign for a round of 66.

Power incredibly holed out three times during his third round, highlighted by a stunning ace on the 8th. 

Dahmen finds himself in contention for the tournament at 12-under par. 

The American is bidding to win his second title on the Power having won his first at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in 2021. 

He recently slammed LIV Golf's Brooks Koepka following his win on the Saudi-backed circuit in Jeddah. 

Dahmen has previously blasted LIV Golf players over them wanting to come back and play on the PGA Tour. 

He also recently took a swipe at Bryson DeChambeau.
