Wyndham Clark makes ACE during PGA Championship practice round

Kiawah Island's Ocean Course is set to pose a serious challenge for the players this week at the PGA Championship, but one player will have an extra spring in his step when he walks onto the 17th tee come Thursday.

Wyndham Clark made a hole-in-one at the 223-yard par-3 17th on Tuesday, much to the delight of the spectating crowd and his playing partners, which included four-time PGA Tour winner Daniel Berger.

Footage of the epic ace was posted on Instagram by PXG, Clark's club sponsor, along with the caption: "I guess drinks are on me tonight."


Clark plays the opening two rounds alongside South African Daniel van Tonder, who qualified for this week's major after winning the Kenya Savannah Classic on the European Tour earlier this year, while PGA club professional Alex Beach also joins the group.

Although Clark found the bottom of the hole on Tuesday, the penultimate hole at the Ocean Course could cause some problems if the wind starts to pick up this week.

Players will find the water if they push anything out too far right, whilst sand awaits those who pull their shot left.

"Something tells me we won’t see anyone do that again this week," one golf fan said in the comments of the video.

"How good is Wyndham Clark’s swing," read another comment.
