Tiger Woods hit his first hole in one at the Heartwell golf course in Long Beach, California. He spoke about his first hole-in-one at a golf clinic.

Tiger said, “So the ball carries the bunker, it rolls into the hole. Everybody in my group celebrates but me. I can’t see that high. So, one of the guys picks me up, shows me there’s no ball on the green. I’m excited — I run to the green, pick the ball out of the hole and I’m celebrating. And the kids came down and said ‘you idiot, your golf bag’s up on the tee.’ So I had to go back up and get my golf bag.”
