U.S. Open: Will Zalatoris makes second hole-in-one of the day at No. 7 at Winged Foot

Talk about lucky No. 7.

Will Zalatoris aced the par-3 7th hole in the first round of the 2020 U.S. Open on Thursday.

His hole-in-one came about six hours after Patrick Reed aced it.

The hole is playing 165 yards. Reed’s ball one-hopped into the hole, while Zalatoris took a different approach. His ball bounced four times before gently rolling up to the cup and then falling in from the left side.

They are the 46th and 47th holes-in-one recorded in U.S. Open history, and the first aces of the 2020-21 PGA Tour season. At the 1989 U.S. Open, Doug Weaver, Mark Wiebe, Jerry Pate and Nick Price set a championship record when they all aced the 159-yard par 3, 6th hole at Oak Hill.

For Reed it’s his first ace since 2015 and helped him to a first-round 66. Zalatoris currently leads the Korn Ferry Tour points list.
