With one swing, Aaron Rai made Players Championship history on what is arguably golf’s most iconic hole: TPC Sawgrass’ par-3 17th. 

The 28-year-old Englishman, who moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, two weeks ago, followed up a birdie on the par-5 16th by acing the par-3 17th with his gap wedge from 122 yards. 

« Insane. It’s such a blur, » Rai said after carding a 7-under 65 in the third round. « It felt great off the face, looked perfect in the air, and then when I saw it pitch and spin back, it looked like it had a great chance. I didn’t expect it to go in … to see it disappear and to see my caddie running at me almost full speed was pretty awesome. »
