Standing on the tee of the famous 17th hole at three-over-par, the Spaniard made a hole-in-one…

“It could have done anything,” Garcia said.

“It could have stayed there, gone farther. It was nice that it spun back into the hole. And I needed it after the start that I had. I turned a poor round into a decent round.”

Garcia ended the day with a one-over 73 to sit six behind day one leaders William McGirt and Mackenzie Hughes.
