Watch how close Henrik Stenson came to making a hole-in-one on Friday at the Ryder Cup

There have been six holes-in-one in the history of the Ryder Cup. Henrik Stenson nearly made it seven on Friday.

Stenson flushed an 8-iron from 191 yards, and it came about as close as you can get from going in the hole.

The gimme birdie for Stenson was his third birdie in a row -- helping he and Justin Rose take a two-up lead on Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed in a rematch of their opening foursomes match.

This looks like the Stenson we saw at Royal Troon -- hitting iron after iron inside 10 feet. The Open champion has found his groove.

And The Swede nearly joined a short list of those who have made history in past Ryder Cups.

Here's the short list:

1973: Peter Butler (GB & I)

1993: Nick Faldo (Team Europe)

1995: Costantino Rocca (Europe)

1995: Howard Clark (Europe)

2006: Paul Casey (Europe)

2006: Scott Verplank (U.S.)
