LatinoAthlete.com wants to congratulate Sergio Garcia for becoming the eighth player ever to record a hole-in-one on the famed island green.

During the first round of the Players Championship on Thursday, Sergio Garcia blew everyone away with an astonishing hole-in-one

Take a look, and yes, be impressed!

Sergio made the second ace on the 17th hole in two years, following Willy Wilcox in last year’s second round. Before that, no one had aced the 17th hole since 2002, so it took 14 years and then BOOM, two back to back hole-in-ones 12 months apart.

Who knew golf could be this exciting.

This puts Garcia one over for the day, which puts him tied for 66th place and six strokes back of the lead. For now all that matters is that Sergio eighth player to ace No. 17 at the Players Championship!
