Korn Ferry Tour pro starts tournament with an albatross

February 17, 2022

Peyton White plays his shot during the second round of the 2021 Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament Final Stage.


A Korn Ferry Tour pro took getting off to a great start to a whole other level on Thursday morning.

Peyton White made an albatross on his first hole of the LECOM Suncoast Classic. Imagine being three under par after one hole? Must be nice, Peyton.

White began his round on the par-5, 550-yard hole at Lakewood National Golf Club. The live leader board showed the score right away, but those things can't always be trusted. The Korn Ferry Tour confirmed golf's rarest of birds shortly after.

We've seen some crazy stuff on the Korn Ferry Tour already this year. Mac Meissner recorded a pair of 10s on the same hole last month and just last week, James Nicholas followed up a 79 with a 61. To still miss the cut.

Unfortunately for White, he hasn't kept up the pace. The 26-year-old still looking to make his first cut of the 2022 season made bogeys on 14 and 16 and 18 to give all three of those shots back by the time he made the turn. So much for 59 (49?) watch.
