SANDY, Utah (AP) — Peter Tomasulo, Chris Stroud, Brian Stuard and Jonathan Fricke had holes-in-one Thursday in the first round of the Utah Championship, the first time in Nationwide Tour history that there have been four aces in a round. Bubba Dickerson added another on Friday.
Tomasulo had the first ace, holing a 7-iron shot on the 203-yard second hole at Willow Creek Country Club. Forty minutes later, Stroud repeated the feat at the hole with a 6-iron. Stuard made the third ace of the day, holing a 7-iron shot at the 191-yard seventh. Fricke then aced the 176-yard fifth, also using a 7-iron. On Friday, Dickerson got his at the 18th.
The last time there were three aces on the same day in a Nationwide Tour event was last year during the first round of Boise Open. Four aces were made on the same day — and the same hole — in the 1989 U.S. Open at Oak Hill.
Tomasulo and Stroud finished with 67s, Fricke had a 68, and Stuard a 69.
