The PGA Tour's 2016-17 season started off with a bang in Thursday's opening round of the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif.
Early in the day, rookie Jon Rahm aced the second hole of his round.
Later on, Morgan Hoffman recorded the first albatross of the new season with -- get this -- an iron from 251 yards out at the par-5 18th hole at Silverado (Hoffman's ninth hole of the day).
Here's the shot:
Three under in one hole? That will help you to make up some ground quickly.
Hoffman would go on to card a 3-under 69 that left him seven strokes behind first-round leader Scott Piercy, who opened with a course-record, 10-under 62.
So, on the first day of the new season we had an ace, an albatross and a course-record. I'd say that's an OK start.
