The par-3 16th at the Backtee New Course in Round 1 of the Made in Denmark is playing 86 yards.

You'd think if ever a professional golfer was going to make an ace, it would be on this hole. You'd be correct.

Zander Lombard holed his tee shot on Thursday and, for his effort, also won a luxury cart for both him and his caddie. (Note: the announcer says 86 meters and 79 yards, but that should be reversed).

A little while later, Edoardo Molinari did the same.
