Shawn Stefani becomes first player to make hole-in-one at a Merion-hosted U.S. Open

If you were taking bets on which hole might get aced this week at Merion, the 17th would probably be your last pick. The lengthy par-3 to close out the U.S. Open has played incredibly tough this week, but the tees were moved up for the final round and Shawn Stefani took full advantage of a couple of things, becoming the first player to ever make a hole-in-one during a U.S. Open hosted at Merion.

Stefani hit a 4-iron on the 213 yard par-3, missing the entire green to the left but got a favorable hop, and the ball just would not stop rolling toward the cup.

It disappeared, Stefani celebrated like a mad man and he has a great memory at this U.S. Open.

That shot by Stefani was the 43rd hole-in-one in the history of the U.S. Open and helped Stefani improve his score by 16 shots from Saturday to Sunday.
