Jordan Spieth is one of the best new golfers in the world today. After winning two major championships earlier this year, the 21-year-old shot up to the number one ranking in the entire world.
While he may not hold that spot anymore, he is still a very good player on the court. That was no more evident than at Thursday’s first round of the BMW Championship.
Spieth was sitting at even when he snuck up on the 196-yard par 3 second hole at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, Illinois. That’s when he crushed one of the prettiest golf shots I have seen in a long while.
That beauty of a shot has helped Spieth move up the leaderboard as he is currently tied with four others for third place at four-under-par after thirteen holes. Not only did his hole-in-one help Spieth move up the leaderboard, it will also net a $100,000 donation to the Western Golfer’s Association/Evans Scholarship Foundation from BMW.
Spieth currently trails Jason Day in his pairing by four strokes. Day is also the sole leader at the BMW Championship.
