There is nothing quite like a hole-in-one. Okay, fine, I have no idea, I've never made one, but they look like they are a ton of fun to make and the celebrations always seem like something you would like to be involved in.
Angela Stanford got a chance to celebrate on Thursday at the Honda LPGA Thailand. Stanford was coming off a bogey on the par-5 7th hole when she got to No. 8, needing something to get her tournament going as she sat at 1-under.
That came when she knocked her tee shot in from 146 yards for the hole-in-one, a rarity for any player but especially when the pin is tucked that close to the front of the green.
Stanford's ball landed just on the front of the putting surface, released towards the cup and crashed into the pin, dropping for the one and the celebration with her playing partners.
Her round didn't stop there, with Stanford adding two more birdies and one bogey to finish at 4-under for the day, just two shots off the lead held by Anna Nordqvist at 6-under.
