European Tour sets up 86-yard par 3 hole, quickly sees two aces

The European Tour is playing in Denmark this week where there's a unique hole-length situation going on.

Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, home of the Made in Denmark event, had its 16th hole playing at a measly 86 yards on Thursday for the tournament's first round. Eighty-six yards!

You know what that means... It was target practice for most.

In Round 1, both Eduardo Molinari and Zander Lombard recorded holes in one:

 
 
The hole played as the sixth easiest on the first day. Along with the two aces, it saw 36 birdies, 100 pars, 13 bogeys and four double bogeys.

 

Fun hole.
