Jordan Spieth Makes Ace During First Round at BMW Championship

September 17, 2015

Jason Day was running away with the round of the day from the marquee group of him, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler at the BMW Championship. Then Spieth made an ace on the 2nd hole.

His Australian playing partner had just holed out for eagle on the first hole, their 10th of the day, and was at 6-under. The par-3 2nd was playing 184 yards, so Spieth pulled out his 7-iron. The 22-year-old didn’t fly it all the way to the hole, and was caught begging it to “Be enough. Go. Go!”

It did go, and it was just enough, kicking forward off one bounce short of the green before rolling into the cup. A slew of high fives commenced. The hole-in-one moved Spieth from even par to 2 under on the round.

According to ESPN’s Jason Sobel, who was following the star-studded group, Spieth said it was his fourth career ace.
