Adam Hadwin made headlines at the PGA Tour CareerBuilder Challenge after carding a 59 on Saturday. And while he deserves it, there's another man having a week he won't soon forget.

David Colby, an amateur, stole the show on Sunday with a hole-in-one on the 17th hole at the Stadium Course. He didn't even realize it had gone in until he heard the roars. The ace not only gave Colby a larger lead over the rest of the amateurs in the field, but also earned him a brand new Genesis G80.

And better yet, he did it wearing some incredibly colorful pants, sporting a bright yellow golf ball.

Good shot, great swagger.
