Patrick Reed aces hole and engages in a heartwarming celebration

The marvel took place on the par-3 16th hole at the 2015 Shell Houston Open. Playing 5-under par, Reed took on the 178-yard and hit his first shot with a 5-iron. Perfect distance, an impeccable line, and there’s nowhere else the ball could’ve gone.

It dropped right on the edge of the green, and as the camera zoomed in, it rolled closer and closer to the hole. The crowd sucked in their breath in anticipation and they were not disappointed. “How about an ace?” the commentator says, as the ball sinks in. Reed lifts his hands in celebration as praises pour in from the caddies and fellow players.

The video continues as an exuberant Reed races his caddie to the green. Amusingly, the latter remains ahead, despite carrying a golf bag on his shoulder. The 2018 Masters winner went on card a score of 9-under par and finished T-17. J. B. Holmes topped the leaderboard after winning a playoff against Jordan Spieth and Johnson Wagner.
