Tiger Woods witnesses first hole-in-one at golf course he designed

When Tiger Woods isn't hitting 9-irons or giving advice to Jason Day, he's helping to break in the new golf course complex he designed at Bluejack National, a new community outside Houston, Texas.
Woods was there Wednesday, in fact, for the grand opening of The Playgrounds – a 10-hole loop of par-3 holes that range from 53 to 102 yards in length. A large crowd was on hand for the festivities, which included some kids getting to check out the facilities.
One of those kids was 11-year-old Taylor Crozier, who was announced to the crowd as having "perfect attendance in school this year – until today." Young Taylor might have missed some lessons, but safe to say he etched a pretty good chapter into his own personal history.
Taylor stepped up to hit the very first shot on the new course – it landed on the green, and spun right into the hole. So the first ace to be recorded at The Playgrounds came o the very first shot struck there – and it happened with Tiger standing right there.
The crowd went nuts when the ball disappeared into the cup, and Taylor got plenty of congratulations – including a big bear hug from Tiger. In fact, no one seemed happier than Tiger for the kid's special shot on this very special day.
Here's the video of the hole-in-one and, down below, a shot of a scorecard that Taylor no doubt will cherish the rest of his life. Not only does it have Tiger's autograph, it also shows that both Taylor and his playing partner beat Tiger by three shots!:
