It's been a rough day on the course for John Peterson, the 23-year-old former LSU golfer who started the day at one-over after a couple of impressive showings to start the week. He was four-over par for the day and six shots off the lead as he walked up to the 13th hole, a 199 yard par-3.
When he hit his tee shot, he didn't seem to think that he hit it hard enough. He started yelling at the ball to 'go', and it went. His shot caught the front of the green and took an extremely favorable bounce, then rolled straight towards the cup and went directly in for an ace without any kind of skip off the flagstick.
Peterson's now three-over par, just two-over on the day and four shots behind leader Jim Furyk.
