Mozo, college golfer make incredible slam dunk aces

RSS

Regular holes-in-one are cool if you're into that sort of thing, but the latest trend in golf is the slam dunk ace.

First it was the LPGA's Belen Mozo on Sunday at the Ladies European Masters in Germany from 142 yards out. Mozo posted video of the shot and her great reaction on social media that helped her to a final-round 69 and second-place finish in the event.

Then on Monday, it was Wisconsin junior Eddie Wajda on the 220-yard par-3 eighth hole at University Ridge Golf Club during the second round of the Badger Invitational.

The shot helped Wajda finish the day with a 2-under 70 and put him in a tie for ninth place entering Tuesday's final round.

So it appears the lesson taught long ago by the great Happy Gilmore still holds true - getting the ball in the hole in one shot is the easiest approach to golf.
