Former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy had quite the day on the links. The 2009 national champion aced what is presumably the first hole of his golfing career, judging by the pure excitement of his reaction at least.
“I think I made it. I’m not kidding, I think I made it. I don’t see it.”
McElroy took aim at the No. 13 pin on the Legacy Course at Alabama's Greystone Golf and Country Club, home of the PGA Tour Champions Regions Tradition. When he had trouble seeing his ball on the green, McElroy hopped into his golf cart and took us for a ride, detailing the hole on his iPhone.
“I think I made. I’m not kidding, I think I made it. I don’t see it.”
As McElroy inches closer and closer, his childlike excitement builds. "There’s nothing on the green and that thing was flag high," he can be heard saying. "It was pin seeking.”
“No way. Let’s go!”
McElroy comes screeching to a halt in his golf cart, apologizing to the viewers for his abrupt stop. Lo and behold, as he reaches the hole, there is his ball, sitting at the bottom of the cup. His triumphant scream made the exciting build-up all the more worth it.
Sometimes it’s difficult to create genuine, childlike excitement as an adult. But, today made me feel like a kid again. pic.twitter.com/uNxKjKhenX— Greg McElroy (@GregMcElroy) July 25, 2018
