Eddie Pepperell left the Sky Sports commentary team in astonishment with a remarkable hole in one during the first round of the British Masters.
The world No 50 was one-under par through his opening eight holes at Walton Heath before he took aim at the par-three ninth hole.
Pepperell, playing alongside Luke Donald and Sam Horsfield, followed his tee shot with intent as his effort flew right on line before the ball struck the bottom of the pin before veering up and bouncing nearby before rolling back into the cup.
The ball appeared to defy all semblance of logic!
Sky Sports’ Mark Roe described it as “one of the most astonishing hole in ones” while the rest of the team, including on-course commentator Wayne Riley, were left debating what actually had happened long after it happened.
The ace was not only valuable to Pepperell in terms of his chances at the tournament but also means a £20,000 cheque will be heading to charity.
“I thought it pitched in the hole, shot up like it was going to go to the back of the green from where we were stood and then all of a sudden it disappeared,” Pepperell told Sky Sports‘ Tim Barter.
“My eyes started to go a little bit so I wasn’t sure what had happened to be honest. What actually did happen!”
