It wasn't enough to record an ace - Neal Lancaster had to ruin the hole for everyone else, too.

Playing the 178-yard par-3 second hole on Sunday at Del Paso Country Club, Lancaster jarred his tee shot and caved in the cup, forcing the grounds crew to cut a new hole two feet from the original so play could continue. 

Per Golfweek, Lancaster's playing partner Scott Simpson had to wait seven minutes for tournament officials to decide what to do before he could finish the hole.
