Rickie Fowler Aced the Par-3 17th During a Practice Round at The Players

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Rickie Fowler made the first ace of the week on the par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass during his Wednesday practice round ahead of The Players Championship. It is possible that it will be the only ace of the week.

Prior to last season when Will Wilcox aced the hole using a yellow golf ball, there was a 14-year drought between hole-in-ones on the famous island green.

This year, BookMaker.eu lists the odds at +350 in favor of a hole-in-one and -500 against.

Fowler, who was at one point considered one of the most overrated players on Tour by his peers, won the Players in 2015. It is still the biggest win of his career.

Fowler has finished in the top 10 in six of the 11 events he’s entered this season, including a win at The Honda Classic.

Fowler’s finishes this season:

  • WGC-HSBC Champions – T6
  • ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf – T2
  • Hero World Challenge – T3
  • Farmers Insurance Open – Cut
  • Waste Management Phoenix Open – T4
  • The Honda Classic – 1
  • WGC-Mexico Championship – T16
  • Arnold Palmer Invitational – 12
  • Shell Houston Open – T3
  • Masters – T11
  • Zurich Classic – Cut (Teamed with Jason Day)
