Will Wilcox is having a memorable debut at The Players Championship. He made a hole-in-one Friday on the island-green 17th, one of the most famous par 3s in golf.

Wilcox hit a pitching wedge from 147 yards, and his yellow golf ball rolled a few feet into the cup.

It was the first ace on the 17th hole at the TPC Sawgrass since Miguel Angel Jimenez in 2002. Only five other players have made a hole-in-one on the 17th in the 35 years at the Stadium Course — Paul Azinger, Joey Sindelar, Fred Couples, Brian Claar and Brad Fabel.
