One day after Tom Lewis and Miguel Angel Jimenez each made a hole-in-one in the Abu Dhabi Championship, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy knocked one in of his own.
Here it is, McIlroy's very first ace in European Tour competition:
That wasn't only McIlroy's first hole-in-one on the European Tour, but also his first as a professional.
It happened on the 177-yard, par-3 15th hole and he used a 9-iron. The ace helped McIlroy to a 6-under 66. At 11-under par, he enters the weekend trailing leader Martin Kaymer by two shots.
