So Si Woo Kim won The Players.
00:02
Sergio Garcia had a hole in one.
00:03
And Rafa Cabrera Bello made an albatross.
00:06
But the best shot of the week
00:08
that you probably didn't see.
00:09
Came from
00:10
me.
00:11
That's right.
00:12
I aced the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.
00:16
Well, a replica that is.
00:18
But Brooks Koepka was still impressed.
00:20
Check out the video my coworkers are already sick of seeing.
00:24
I'm not sure why Golf Channel hasn't aired this video yet.
00:27
When it's been showing Sergio's ace on a loop.
00:29
Golf channel.
00:30
If you're watching.
00:31
You're allowed to use this clip.
00:32
Or clips.
00:34
Here it is from a slightly different angle.
00:37
So does this count as a real hole in one?
00:39
I'm expecting Stephen A. Smith to debate this
00:41
at length on first take.
00:43
On one hand,
00:44
it was my fourth attempt on a 35 yard replica hole.
00:48
Howeva!
00:50
I got a high five from a righter putter.
00:52
And I did it in front of a crowd of people.
00:55
A few guys gathered.
00:56
For the promotional event
00:57
because they thought they were gonna get free beer.
00:59
The best part might have been
01:00
that I didn't even have to buy drinks for everyone.
01:03
Brooks and his sponsor Michelob Ultra took care of that.
01:06
By the way, Michelob Ultra.
01:07
If you ever want to sponsor The Grind.
01:10
If I never make a real hole in one.
01:12
At least I'll always have this.
01:14
And if I do.
01:15
I'll be better prepared next time
01:17
for the celebratory photo.
01:22
(upbeat music)
