PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (Reuters) - Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo claimed a hole-in-one on the opening morning of the British Open as he aced the par-three 13th at Royal Portrush on Thursday.
The 26-year-old, who missed the cut in the last two years, sparked huge roars as his tee shot landed on the shoulder of a ridge to the left of the green and rolled into the cup.
He had been struggling at two-over after an ugly seven at the fifth, but his moment of magic took him back to level par.
