Two players ace same hole, also miss cut at European Tour’s Kenya Open

The European Tour is known for its social media videos. Angry Golfers was a recent success, and who doesn’t love Chase the Ace, where professional golfers are tasked with making an ace in one day with 500 swings.

We’ve got a couple suggestions for the next contestants: Alexander Levy and Chris Paisley.

In Friday’s second-round action at the Magical Kenya Open at Karen Country Club in Nairobi, both players – playing in separate groups – made holes-in-one on the par-3 14th. We’re not sure if this technically can be called a dance, but Levy had a fun little celebration after his ace.

Despite the stellar shots, both players failed to make the cut. Levy finished the opening two rounds at 1 under par, one shot outside the cut. Paisley was two shots short of making the cut at even par.

Kalle Samooja and Scott Hend are tied for the lead entering the weekend at 11 under.

In a weird turn of events, the European Tour also announced Friday that “due to ongoing logistical difficulties beyond our control we will be unable to deliver live world feed coverage of the third day of the Magical Kenya Open presented by Johnnie Walker on Saturday 20th March 2021.” The first two rounds also ran into difficulties and were not broadcast.

The tour hopes to be able to broadcast Sunday’s final round.
