GIF: Zach Johnson makes a hole-in-one, then high fives a million different people

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Hole-in-ones are hard to come by at Pinehurst No. 2. When Zach Johnson stepped onto the ninth hole Sunday, no aces had been recorded at the 2014 U.S. Open and only one had ever been recorded at a Pinehurst U.S. Open -- by Peter Jacobsen, also on the ninth hole. That changed when Zach Johnson did this:

That hole-in-one was undoubtedly impressive, but it was nothing compared to his celebration. 

But despite giving high fives to everyone on the right side of the hole, he wasn't done. He ran over to show the left side some love.

Congratulations, Zach! Now go sit down for a bit.
