As Tom Byrum was lining up an eight-foot putt, Magee’s ball struck his putter and dropped straight into the hole, resulting in the most unbelievable ace in PGA Tour history. He has a commemorative plaque on the golf course. They rarely give an honor like this to any golfer.

Magee tried to recreate the magic

Five years ago, Magee attempted to recreate his famous hole-in-one shot. He channeled the same adrenaline and determination that propelled his ball into the hole over 20 years ago. 

He tried to launch his drive with the same precision and power and send the ball soaring down the fairway. But unfortunately, the ball landed once in the water and then in the bunker. It did come close to the hole once but sadly passed over it.
