Francesco Molinari deals ace at Arnold Palmer Invitational

By

Francesco Molinari got off to a rousing start Thursday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a hole-in-one in the first round.

Molinari posted his ace on the 203-yard No. 7 hole at Bay Hill using a 4-iron.

It was the second hole-in-one for Molinari on the PGA Tour.

Molinari aced the par-3 16th hole at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Round 3 in 2015.

Molinari’s tee shot hit just beyond the hole and backed up before dropping in.

Fans then hurled dozens of aluminum beer bottles onto the grass in celebration of Molinari’s ace.

Molinari wasn’t alone in his eagle on the seventh. In afternoon play Thursday, D.A. Points recorded another hole-in-one on the seventh hole.
