Five Players Hit Aces in Nationwide Event!

At the Utah Championship (Nationwide Tour) this past weekend there was a record five players who hit a hole in one. Five hole in one shots in the same event with four coming in the first round was a first for the Nationwide tour. The last time there were three aces on the same day during a Nationwide Tour event was last year during the first round of the Boise Open.

Brian Stuard, Jonathan Fricke, Chris Stroud and Peter Tomasulo had aces in the first round on Thursday and Bubba Dickerson added another on Friday. Peter Tomasulo had the fist hole in one on the 2nd hole at Willow Creek Country Club from 203 yards. About forty five minutes later, Chris Stroud knocked in his ace with a 6 iron from the same distance. Brian Stuard had the next hole in one at the seventh hole from 191 yards and Jonathan Fricke then aced the 176 yard 5th hole. The following day, Bubba Dickerson got his ace at the 18th hole.

The only other time that four aces were made on the same day during a professional golf tournament was in 1989. During the 1989 U.S. Open at Oak Hill, four golfers hit a hole in one on the same hole in the same day. Unfortunately, for the five golfers this past weekend and the 4 golfers from 1989, there was no prize on the hole so the golfers walked away empty handed.
