THIS is the amazing moment Kevin Na calls his hole in one – with the ball still in mid-flight.
The American was playing his final practice round ahead of the start of the 146th Open at Royal Birkdale.
Na stepped onto the tee of the 200-yard par-three 14th and unleashed a laser straight at the pin.
How do we know?
Well pretty much as soon as he strikes the shot Na says, “Ooh, baby!”
And that’s usually a good sign.
Sure enough the ball takes several bounces before rolling out into the flag and into the bottom of the cup.
A smiling Na walks off the tee before being mobbed by playing partner James Hahn, who got into the field after Brandt Snedeker pulled out with a rib injury.
And fellow PGA Tour star Tony Finau gets in on the act too, giving his pal a high-five as they make their way to the green.
