Jimenez Hits Hole In One in Dubai

Congratulations to Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain!

During Thursday's opening round of the Dubai Desert Classic, Jimenez hit a hole in one on the par-3 seventh hole at the Emirates Golf Club. Published reports state that Jimenez used a six-iron to ace the 186 yard hole. For a touring professional, the odds of making an ace are roughly 2,500 to 1. Unfortunately for Miguel, there was no hole in one contest taking place on the seventh hole this week to commemorate his achievement.

According to the course's official site, the seventh is one of the more beautiful yet challenging holes at the club. A lake stretches from the tee box all the way to the apron of the green, leaving little room for error with mishit shots. Even balls that look safe occassionally roll back into the water. However, long is no safe play either, as bunkers and a steep bank of rough protect the back of the green. Needless to say, when the wind is whipping across the water, this hole is tough.
