Video: Steve Stricker's Hole-In-One and Memorial Highlight Reel

Posted: June 6, 2011

Titleist Brand Ambassador Steve Stricker's victory last weekend at The Memorial Tournament came with a lot of perks, including a big winner's check, a crystal trophy and a jump to No. 4 in the world ranking.

On Friday, he also happened to earn the No. 1 Top Play on "SportsCenter" – a feat that never goes unnoticed – with his hole-in-one at Muirfield Village's par-3 8th hole (his 17th hole of the day) during Round 2.

The yardage was 186 yards, with wind blowing a bit left to right. Steve pulled his AP2 6-iron and hit his normal draw, holding his Pro V1x golf ball up against the wind on line toward the flagstick.

The ball landed about 5 feet from the stick, bounced slightly and rolled into the hole for Steve's second-career PGA Tour ace.

"I didn't see how it went in, but it looked like it went in fairly nicely, like a putt," he told ESPN. "It's a shock when you see that go in, obviously, but in a good way, a great way to finish the round."

After the round, Steve signed the Pro V1x and gave it to his scorer for the round. (He had also birdied his final hole with the ball.)
