There has been only one of them ever on the PGA Tour.
Now there’s a hole-in-one on a par 4 on PGA Tour Canada.
Davis Shore pulled off that amazing feat Friday at the PGA Tour Canada’s Windsor Championship.
Playing the back nine first in his second round, Shore actually had a roller-coaster of a day. He opened with two pars and was – believe it not – even through six holes after a double bogey-birdie-double bogey-ace. He was still even after two more pars on Nos. 16 and 17 at Ambassador Golf Club in Windsor, Ontario. A bogey on the 18th hole, his ninth of the day, gave him the wildest 1-over front nine you’ll probably ever see.
Back to his ace, Shore did it on a short par 4 that measures 321 yards on the scorecard but was playing 290 yards Friday.

There doesn’t appear to be video of the actual shot, so that stinks.
Shore won the PGA Tour Canada’s event a week ago at TPC Toronto. This week, despite his par-4 heroics, he’s near the bottom of the leaderboard.
Andrew Magee has the only ace on a par 4 in tournament play in the PGA Tour, doing so at the 17th hole at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona in 2001.
There have been four aces on par-4s on the Korn Ferry Tour, the most recent coming in 2012 in the then-Web.com Tour Championship by Rob Oppenheim at TPC Craig Ranch in Texas.
Crazy game, this golf.
