Most professional golfers wouldn't react the way Ken Duke reacted to his hole-in-one at the Humana Challenge on Sunday. They might take it in stride — perhaps they way Keegan Bradley did on Friday. But then again, most professional golfers aren't Ken Duke. This is the same guy who hit one of the luckiest shots you'll ever see en route to his only victory on the PGA Tour (at the 2013 Travelers Championship). So when the 44-year-old journeyman aced the par-3 17th hole in the final round of the erstwhile Bob Hope Classic, you can understand his emotions.
Duke knocked a sand wedge stiff from 110 yards out. When it fell into the cup, the guy from the same hometown as President Clinton shouted, "That's what I'm talking about!" and high-fived his playing partners and caddy. Duke also unleashed a dance we won't soon forget (as much as we want to). Alas, for all his excitement, Duke finished at 12-under and T-69th.
Super Bowl matchup set
Thanks to Richard Sherman's tipped pass ultimately intercepted by Malcolm Smith, the Seattle Seahawks hung on for a thrilling 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. With the win, Seattle earned the franchise's second trip to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks will face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. Peyton Manning and Co. beat the New England Patriots 26-16. According to oddsmakers, the game is the closest Super Bowl in 32 years.
