Viktor Hovland (NOR), the “Taekwondo Boy” competing in the Ryder Cup, the Europe-U.S. golf tournament, had the rare good fortune to score a hole-in-one on a par-4 during a practice round. Playing a practice round at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club near Rome, Italy, on Aug. 28 (local time), Hovlan teed off with a fairway wood on the fifth hole (par-4) and hit the ball into the hole. The ball landed on the green in front of the hole, rolled a bit, and was sucked into the hole .Hundreds of spectators watched and cheered .Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Matt Fitzpatrick (England) and Ludvig Aberg (Sweden), who were playing a practice round together, hugged Hovlan and celebrated. A hole-in-one on a par-4 has only been accomplished once before on the PGA Tour .Andrew Magee (USA) made the only other hole-in-one on a par-4 in 2001 at the Phoenix Open. Hovlan, who had his best season this year when he won the Tour Championship at the end of the PGA Tour Playoffs, practiced taekwondo as a child. He is a key member of the European team at this year’s Ryder Cup alongside Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Rory McIlroy (Spain).Hovlan will be paired with Avery in a foursomes match on the first day of the Ryder Cup, which 토토사이트 begins on Monday afternoon, against Max Homa-Brian Harman.
