Aaron Baddeley's tee shot the drivable par-4 17th at TPC San Antonio on Thursday had flown into an unplayable lie. The Aussie decided he would re-tee, hitting 3 from the tee box.
Well, Baddeley put a 3 on his scorecard.
That's because Baddeley holed his second tee ball, dropping in the cup from 336 yards away for the most incredible birdie ever.
"I hit the second one, man, why didn't I do that the first time? And it rolls up and goes in," said Baddeley after the round.
The birdie got Baddeley to 4 under on a difficult scoring day in Round 1 of the Valero Texas Open. He capped off the round with a closing par to shoot 68 on the par-72 track to trail Charley Hoffman by a shot. The incredible escape could prove huge in Baddeley's quest for a fourth PGA Tour win and first since the 2011 Northern Trust Open.
