Diaz makes another ace, history at Kia Classic


Laura Diaz joined an exclusive club Sunday when she wrote down another “1” at the Kia Classic.

The LPGA veteran made a hole-in-one on the sixth hole at Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, Calif. On Saturday, she aced the third hole.

As a result, Diaz, 38, became just the second player in tour history to record two holes-in-one in the same tournament. Jenny Lidback was the first, back at the 1997 Chrysler-Plymouth Tournament of Champions. 

Even better for Diaz: She followed up her ace Sunday with another eagle – this time, on the par-4 seventh – and became the first player in LPGA history to accomplish that feat.

Diaz shot a final-round 70 and was outside the top 30 when she finished her round.
