It is, however, when it’s made at a par 5.
John Senden pulled the trick Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, holing a 4-iron from 250 yards at the second hole for the first double eagle in the tournament's history. The hole was playing as a 562-yard par 5.
While there have been 31 holes-in-one this season, Senden recorded just the third double eagle of the year. Matthew Borchert got the first at the Valero Texas Open in May and Paul Lawrie the other at the British Open in July.
