Former PGA Tour pro John Morgan makes an ace, swims to fetch his golf ball

Former PGA Tour player John Morgan was so pleased to make an ace he dived into a nearby pond to retrieve his golf ball from the green.

Morgan made the ace as part of a filmed contest worth 100,000 pounds. The only problem, however, was that Morgan wasn't part of the contest.

After all 26 participants in the Albrate Shoot-out tried and failed to make a hole-in-one, Morgan, a golf commentator for Sky Sports, was shooting wrap-up footage of the event when he decided to take a crack at the 170-yard par 3 on Cumberwell Park's (UK) new par-3 course himself. And, of course, he made it:

Despite not receiving the full £100,000, Morgan was given a grand for his trouble. So, a pretty good day for the former golfer then.
