Abraham Ancer had, not surprisingly, never had an albatross on the PGA Tour until this week.
Then the Mexican knocked in this shot from 250 yards at the par-5 14th en route to posting a second-round 65 at the CJ Cup. His driving iron pitched short of the green before tracking and taking the break and rolling perfectly into the cup for a very welcome two.
"It was such a cool shot coming altogether. A lot of things have to go right for that ball to go in and it looks really cool on video, too. I was in between flying it there on the green with a longer club or just hitting like that 4-iron just a little bit lower, make sure it lands somewhere short of the green and chases up there just because I know long was probably not a good spot to be there," he explained.
"You can't really see anything, so I hit it kind of where I was looking and I felt like it was a good strike. I was like, hopefully it's going to be somewhere around the green. It's nice to see that it did exactly what we hoped to. We couldn't see, there were only a couple people behind the green. They yelled, but it could have been just close to it, so I didn't know if it went in or not until they called it in on the radio and they confirmed it. Pretty cool."
