It hadn't been a great weekend for Tim Clark before he got to the 11th hole on Sunday at Oak Hill. Clark opened his bid for the final major of the year with a round of 1-under 69, but a Friday 71 and Saturday 75 dropped him well down the leaderboard.
Then came Sunday. Clark shot 2-over on the front nine, double-bogeyed the par-4 10th and came to the 11th without much left to play for besides pride. Clark pulled his 3-hybrid, took dead aim at the flag tucked just over the front bunker and made the best swing anyone has made all week.
The ball took a couple of hops, hit the stick and disappeared for the hole-in-one. Clark was excited, but so was his playing partner Miguel Angel Jimenez, who actually came back to him to give him a high five and congratulations.
Clark's ace was the first one at a PGA Championship since Tom Lehman made a one on the 17th hole in 2010 at Whistling Straits.
