When Danny Lee aced his tee shot at the 141-yard, par-3 17th at the Palmer Private course on Sunday in the final round of the Humana Challenge, it was the fourth hole-in-one of the week for the field.
That might seem like a lot, but it is well short of a PGA Tour record.
The four aces this week tie for third most in a tour event since 1983, along with a dozen other events. It ties the 1995 and ’98 Hope – both 90-hole events – for the most in the event in the last 30 years.
The quartet of holes-in-one, however, is only halfway to the tour record set at the 2009 RBC Canadian Open. That week, eight different players scored an ace at Glen Abbey.
