The first round of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, got underway on Thursday and fans were treated to a great day of golf on the opening day.
Kevin Kisner and Thorbjorn Olesen finished the day atop the leaderboard finishing 4-under-67 for a one-shot lead over D.A. Points, Chris Stroud, Gary Woodland, Grayson Murray and Brooks Koepka, but the nicest shot of the day came from 31-year-old Joost Luiten.
Early on in Luiten’s day he delivered a perfect shot with a 6-iron on the 181-yard par-3 4th hole as it only needed one hop to get into the hole for a hole-in-one.
It was certainly his best shot of the day and was a nice way to bounce back from back-to-back bogeys on the two previous holes, but he finished the day five over par and nine shots back of the lead.
Sinking a hole-in-one is pretty rare, but this is Luiten's second hole-in-one in just over a month as he also hit an ace on July 6 at the Irish Open.
