Bohyun Park makes first hole-in-one in Augusta National Women’s Amateur history

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.
