Watch former PGA Tour pro John Morgan make an ace -- and swim to his golf ball

June 28, 2017

What would you do if you made a hole-in-one? Would you be so excited that you'd jump into a pond and swim to the green to retrieve your golf ball? That's what former PGA Tour and European Tour pro John Morgan did after making an ace as part of a filmed contest worth £100,000.

The only problem? Morgan wasn't part of the contest.

After none of the 26 participants in the Albrate Shoot-out made a hole-in-one, Morgan, a golf commentator for Sky Sports, was shooting wrap-up footage of the event when he decided to take a crack at the 170-yard par 3 on Cumberwell Park's (UK) new par-3 course. Of course, he made it:

Well, at least he got something for his efforts.

If the name sounds familiar, you either watch a lot of Sky Sports or you remember Morgan's big moment on the PGA Tour. At the 2004 John Deere Classic, the British pro lost to Mark Hensby in a playoff. He used to get pretty fired up -- and wear a backwards hat -- back then, too:
