When you hear the name Ken Duke you don't normally equate it to excitement. The 44-year-old touring pro has made nearly $9 million over his career on the PGA Tour and picked up his first ever PGA Tour win a season ago at the Travelers Championship, but that isn't why he's here.

Duke is here because the guy gets really, really pumped up when he makes a hole-in-one. How excited? Like "21-year-old fraternity guy just got invited to the latest date dash from the best looking girl in the partner sorority" excited.

On Sunday at the Humana Challenge it was Duke who took full advantage of the par-3 17th hole, knocking his tee shot in for the hole-in-one and reacting like he just realized he has the best job in the world just won the lottery.

Duke finished 12-under par for the week, which is normally pretty good at a PGA Tour event but at the Humana is good enough for a T-69th.

Still, that shot is just as good at the Keegan Bradley hole-in-one from earlier in the week and definitely more animated.
