Aces at the Postage Stamp

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 15 Jul 2016 | Comments


The Postage Stamp has seen many great moments and disaters in the history of Open Championships at Troon, but perhaps none more memorable than these two hole-in-ones by Gene Sarazen and Ernie Els. 

Sarazen, playing 50 years after his first appearance, produced a magical shot in the first round at the age of 71. 

 

31 years later, it would be the time of eventual two-time winner Ernie Els, who made a hole-in-one on the eighth on route to losing in a playoff against the unfancied Todd Hamilton.

 

Will there be another in 2016? Don't bet against it.
