OK... trust me. You're not experiencing a case of déjà vu.
For the second time in two weeks, Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez has scored a hole-in-one.
Jimenez, on the par-3 second hole at Wentworth in the third round of the BMW PGA Championship, notched the 10th hole-in-one of his career, a new record on the European Tour. After last week's ace, he was tied with Colin Montgomerie at nine aces apiece.
Here's the latest ace and, much to our delight, he broke out in a celebratory dance yet again:
He's dancing again! Miguel makes his 10th European Tour hole in one. http://t.co/zaPDfICg6A

In case you missed it at the Spanish Open last week, here's that ace:
So, in a matter of minutes, fans at the BMW PGA Championship have been treated to an albatross and a hole-in-one.
How often does that happen?
An absolute stroke of genius.
That's what this shot was for 24-year-old Englishman Tommy Fleetwood in the third round of the European Tour's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Saturday -- an albatross on the par-5 fourth hole.
Everything about the shot was perfect. Check it out here:
That gorgeous shot -- the third albatross in the history of the tournament -- put Fleetwood at 4 under through four holes and 8 under for the tournament (two off the lead at the time of this post).
Impressively, Fleetwood's playing partner Victor Dubuisson eagled the hole. So, the pair played one hole in 5-under par. That's amazing.
Tommy Fleetwood's albatross was the 92nd albatross on The European Tour and the 3rd in #BMWPGA history. It was thanks to a 198-yard 7 iron.

In case you're keeping track at home, the tournament has now featured an ace and an albatross this week.

Sometimes when you're feeling good, you just need to dance.
That's what Kevin Na did after his 20-foot birdie putt dropped on the par-3 13th hole at Colonial in the second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational on Friday:

Na had the outright lead at 10-under par at the time of this post.
While it was a cool little celebration, it still wasn't the best this week. That honor (?) belongs to the European Tour's Andrew Johnston, who scored an ace in the first round of the BMW PGA Championship and proceeded to call a fan in from outside the ropes and went airborne for a chest bump.
Love Na's enthusiasm though.
It's amazing the incredible, and crazy, stuff you can stumble upon if you spend enough time on Twitter.
Check out this amazing shot of a sinkhole at Top of the Rock/Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Missouri, that formed this morning:

The Champions Tour was there last month for a team event won by Billy Andrade and Joe Durant.
I showed the picture to a Champions Tour media official here at the Senior PGA Championship in French Lick, Ind.
He indicated the sinkhole looks to be on the driving range at the golf resort.
Either way, powerful stuff. This isn't the first time we've seen/heard of a golf course sinkhole.
Back in March of 2013, a sinkhole swallowed a golfer standing in the middle of the fairway on an Illinois course. That golfer escaped with minor injuries.
In January of this year, a sinkhole formed because of a drainpipe issue at Traigh Golf Course in Scotland.
UPDATE: The Associated Press dug into this story and found that the sinkhole is currently 80 feet wide and 35 feet deep in some places. Evidently, the big sinkhole was created by two separate sinkholes that formed near the entrance to Top of the Rock golf course near the resort town of Branson, Martin MacDonald, conservation director for Bass Pro Shops, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
The sinkhole formed on the driving range and will not affect play, MacDonald told the AP.
The AP reports:
Geologists say such sinkholes are fairly common in the Ozarks because of its karst topography, a feature in which water is constantly circulating through bedrock below the ground. That's why the region has so many sinkholes and caves, including Lost Canyon Cave, an attraction at the Big Cedar complex, MacDonald said.
The initial focus Friday was ensuring the safety of the public and facilities, none of which were in danger, geological engineer Gary Pendergrass said. Next week, engineers will conduct a more in-depth investigation to determine the best way to replace the 7,000 cubic feet of material displaced by the hole, he said.
But before the hole is filled, it will be explored if there's anything to learn about karst topography.
"From the Top of the Rock perspective, it's not what you want to have," MacDonald said. "But we'll see if we've got anything unique down there."
