Bohyun Park made history Thursday. Her name will forever be tied to the Augusta National Women’s Amateur thanks to her tee shot on the par-3 eighth hole.
Park, the 20-year-old from Farmers Branch, Texas, stepped to the tee at Champions Retreat Golf Club in Evans, Georgia, at 1 over par for the tournament. The 142-yard hole goes over a creek and had a front pin location. The sophomore at Texas hit her tee shot, and the ball landed short of the hole and bounced a couple times before rolling into the left side of a cup.
Boom, an ace. A historic hole-in-one, as Park hit the first ace in the history of the ANWA.
