Points hits shot, hates it, makes hole-in-one

Sometimes you hit a shot poorly but it still turns out just how you planned it. That’s exactly what happened to D.A. Points on No. 7 at Bay Hill Club & Lodge during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

As the ball left the club face, Points lowered his club in disgust, put his hand on his hip and immediately told the ball to “Go!,” thinking he left it short. The ball landed just over the bunker and released about 20 feet and rolled in the hole for an ace.

The ace got Points to 2 under on his round and he finished with an even-par 72. Afterwards, he explained his reaction.

Franceso Molinari also aced No. 7 in the morning wave on his way to a first-round 69.
