Alfonso Ribeiro made a hole-in-one Tuesday during a practice round at the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Web.com Tour. The way he celebrated didn't surprise anyone.

Alfonso Ribeiro is playing the Web.com Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am this week.

During a practice round on Tuesday, the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star who played "Carlton" made a hole in one.

There was no video footage of the ace itself, but a cellphone video was shot when Ribeiro arrived at the green/

And... you probably can guess where this is going celebration-wise.

Yep, the Carlton-dance:

He might not be dancing that happily when the bar tab comes later today.

Rafa Cabrera Bello

Rafa Cabrera Bello's "2" on the par-5 16th hole at TPC Sawgrass on Sunday was the first on that hole in Players Championship history.

Rafa Cabrello Bello hit a golf shot he'll never forget on Sunday.

Playing the par-5 16th hole at TPC Sawgrass in the final round of the Players Championship, the Spaniard holes his second shot from 181 yards for an albatross.

It was the first "2" on the 16th hole in tournament history. It was the third albatross in tournament history. Hunter Mahan (hole 11) and Peter Lonard (hole 2) each made one in 2007.

Here's a look at the thing of beauty:

That shot immediately moved Cabrera Bello from 2 under to 5 under.

What a shot.

Also awesome?

Cabrera Bello's celebration where he accidentally threw his club in the water:

The tee shot that Yuta Ikeda hit on the par-3 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass on Sunday needs to be seen to be believed.

Just when you think you've see it all on the par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass, along comes Yuta Ikeda.

Playing just 129 yards on Sunday, Ikeda hit a beauty. However, it took a big bounce on the firm green and looked doomed for the drink.

Incredibly, the ball hit the railroad tie on the back side of the green and somehow -- instead of bouncing into the water -- bounced back onto the green.

Check it out here:

With that tremendous good fortune, Ikeda was left with a 21-footer for birdie.

He would two-putt for par and probably laughed all the way to the 18th tee.
