You might as well join the party, Chris Wood.

Wood aced the 178-yard par-3 14th hole at the BMW PGA Championship Sunday, as his ball dropped into the cup without even needing the aid of the pin to slow it down.

After the ace – a record fifth of the tournament – he raised his hands, dropped his 7-iron and then took a seat in the new BMW i8 he won.

The hole-in-one pushed Wood to 12-under for the tournament. He’s the fifth player to record an ace this week following Miguel Angel Jimenez, Craig Lee, Andrew Johnston and Trevor Fisher Jr. Tommy Fleetwood also had an albatross during his round on Saturday.
