Watch: European Tour captures Lee Westwood hole-in-one from a plane

By

Lee Westwood had a pretty pedestrian start to the opening round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

After starting his round on the 10th hole, the Englishman was 1 under through 16 holes, and then he stepped foot on the par-3 8th hole.

With the 8th playing 188 yards, Westwood took a perfect swing with his 6-iron and made a hole-in-one, which he claims is his second of the year. Westwood made par on his final hole to card a 3-under 69 on Thursday at Carnoustie.

As if making an ace wasn’t impressive enough, the European Tour was able to capture the shot from a plane with a tracer. It’s truly a sight to see.
