Hole–in–one for Jaco Van Zyl

And yes, he did win a car!

Jaco Van Zyl, who represented South Africa at the Olympics when all his peers couldn't make it, had a stroke of good fortune today. He had a beautiful hole–in-one on the 16th and picked up a brand new BMW i8 in the process, the first time he has ever won a hole–in–one prize.

This is what he had to say for himself:

His ace also helped him to the lowest round of the tournament so far:

Well, that was until this happened.....

There are low scores out there for sure, so it will be very interesting to see how Rory gets on. He felt he had left shots out there yesterday, so maybe he can go properly low as well.
