Stolen thunder: Snedeker's first professional hole-in-one matched


NORTON, Mass. – It had been a decade since Brandt Snedeker made a hole-in-one, and a lifetime as a professional, but his moment of glory was short-lived on Saturday at TPC Boston.

Twenty minutes after Snedeker’s 9-iron tee shot at the 146-yard 16th hole dropped into the hole, Greg Chalmers matched him with the week’s second hole-in-one.

“I don’t even think I got a skin there today,” smiled Snedeker, who said Saturday’s ace was his first as a professional. “It was just kind of one of those fluke things where I hit a great shot at the right time, the wind kind of brought it in there nicely.”
