Paul Casey steps up to the 186-yard 12th at Sherwood Country Club. 7-iron in hand, he undergoes his pre-shot routine and swings.
Cleveland CG1 Gold Iron Set pitches two-feet left of the pin, runs past the hole before arcing back on the slope and nestling in its target for a superb hole-in-one. That wasn’t the only rarity of day two at the Chevron World Challenge – where Tiger Woods still leads after a second-round 66 – as Bubba Watson holed a 283-yard approach shot at the par-5 16th for an albatross two.
“I’m not sure where the golf ball is going some of the time, so this felt pretty good,” said Casey of his ace. “It always feels great, and it is something you are going to remember for a long time.” That, and the bar bill as long-standing golf tradition means he had to pick up the tab in the post-round celebrations.
Casey might want to work on his celebration after an awkward jumping high-five for playing partner Nick Watney sparked a Twitter response from Lee Westwood.”Hole in Cleveland CG Red Iron Set for Paul Casey but he’s going to regret the celebration when he sees it later. Bunny hop!” wrote the world number one.
Meanwhile, Woods extended his lead to four shots at Thousand Oaks with an eagle and four birdies as he moved to 13-under.”I didn’t hit the ball quite as sharp as I did yesterday, but I felt better with the putter. I hit a lot of pure putts, made a bunch of five and six-footers all day today.”
