CROMWELL, Conn. – Trevor Immelman had made an albatross before Thursday – but it was hardly an official one.
“It was in a pro-am,” he remembered with a laugh. “I was playing off members’ tees, so I holed a 9-iron.”
Needless to say, his albatross in the opening round of the Travelers Championship was a little more impressive.
Immelman holed a 3-wood from 246 yards for a rare 2 on the par-5 hole.
“I saw it land and then I kind of lost it for a minute and then we saw it come over the hill. And I saw it disappear, yeah. Quite funny. I mean, it was raining pretty good at that point.”
